Video: Bradley Wiggins explains why he'd "love to win the Giro"
Tour de France and Olympic champion reflects on race which starts on Saturday in Naples
While all the talk over the past 24 hours or so has been about his intentions for the Tour de France and relationship with Chris Froome, Sir Bradley Wiggins has the small matter of the Giro d'Italia to deal with first - the Team Sky rider and Astana's Vincenzo Nibali are expected to be the main challengers for the maglia rosa, although there are a number of other riders who'll be looking to lay claim to it.
In this video from Team Sky clothing supplier Rapha, Wiggins talks about how he fuelled his passion for cycling as a teen by picking up magazines on eBay - given he's 33 now, and eBay was founded in 1995 but adopted its present name two years later, that makes him an impressively early adopter if our maths are correct - and also gives his thoughts about the Giro.
"I'd love to win the Tour of Italy and add that to the Tour de France," he says. "It's the other race that inspires me the most, it's an historical race and so many greats have won it. It's probably more romantic than the Tour, really, in cycling history.
"I think mainstream, everyone's 'the Tour de France,' but in cycling terms the Giro is probably more of a romantic race, I suppose, everyone loves watching it. So I would love to try and win that."
