LONDON: Bradley Wiggins will begin a nationwide lap of honour today, with the four-time Olympic champion and Tour de France winner among the field in the Tour of Britain.

This July the 32-year-old became the first British winner of the Tour de France, road cycling's supreme test of endurance, and Wiggins followed that up in August with Olympic time-trial gold at the London Games.

Now Shane Sutton, his coach at Team Sky, wants Wiggins to enjoy himself and soak up the adulation he is sure to receive from adoring crowds when the Tour of Britain starts in Ipswich today.

"I hope he goes out there and enjoys the moment," said Sutton. I think it's been tough for him to sit down and enjoy the enormity of his success. The Tour of Britain is a really good place to soak it up and enjoy what he's achieved.”
