The Gold medallist will not be starting the race from Barnstaple on Saturday.

OLYMPIC gold medallist Bradley Wiggins will not be taking part in the Devon stage of the Tour of Britain tomorrow (Saturday).

The Tour de France winner picked up a stomach bug overnight and did not start today’s sixth stage from Welshpool to Caerphilly.

Team Sky said on Twitter earlier today: “Unfortunately Bradley Wiggins was unable to start stage six of the Tour of Britain today after picking up a stomach bug. More details soon.”

The Tour will leave from Barnstaple tomorrow morning at 10.15am and travel through Bideford and Great Torrington on its route through Devon.
