BRADLEY Wiggins insists he is relaxed about his Tour de France favourite tag as he prepares to bid for the coveted yellow jersey. Wiggins has been given top billing for the biggest race in world cycling this summer after wins in the Paris-Nice, Tour de Romandie and Criterium du Dauphine stage races.

And the 32-year-old Brit is finding his new-found status refreshing ahead of the opening stage in Liege, Belgium on June 30. Wiggins said: "It's a good position to be in now, going into the Tour de France as the favourite. My performances speak volumes and I'm trying to embrace that because it may never ever happen again."
