Wiggins urges Sky that the team has signed Van der Poel

In his space at Eurosport, the winner of the Tour de France 2012, he recommended the signing of the young Dutch cyclist after his successes in Through Flanders and Amstel Gold Race.


Bradley Wiggins has shown his admiration for Mathieu Van der Poel after the great victory of the Dutch rider in the Amstel Gold Race after a brutal sprint in which he overtook Julian Alaphilippe and Jakob Fuglsang after a spectacular comeback.

In fact, if Wiggins had that to sign a cyclist for the Sky, he would not hesitate to choose the Dutchman. "I would choose Mathieu Van der Poel, although Alaphilippe is also phenomenal, but I think Van der Poel could win a great round someday" .

However, Wiggins in turn prefers that Van der Poel and Alaphilippe do not coincide in the Sky . "It's a bit sad to think that Van der Poel and Alaphilippe ended up in Sky-Ineos, it would be a bit like Manchester City in football. It would be nice if the cyclists were more scattered, it would be great to see him win for another team, against Kwiatkowski, imagine if all of them were on the same team. "

Wiggins surrendered to the Dutch rider after his victories in events such as Through Flanders, Arrow of Brabant or the recent Amstel Gold Race and does not put a ceiling on his progression. "He has impressed us every week, he's the most popular cyclist right now with Alaphilippe, and he has great potential, it's weird to call him a promise because he has already won great races. His potential is enormous. achieved when I reach the age of Philippe Gilbert ".
