Bradley Wiggins led Team Sky to a 1-2-3 in the British time trial championships, with Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas completing the team’s dominance in Wales.

Wiggins retained his title and the right to wear the national champion’s jersey in time trials with a time of 1:04:55 for the rolling 52.7km course. Froome was 1:22 slower, with Thomas at 1:35. Wiggins averaged over 48km/h and looked lean as when he rode the Tour de France in July.

He has only ridden the GP Plouay since his 24th place overall at the Tour and will not ride in this year’s world championships in Melbourne, but will be part of a strong Team Sky squad for the Tour of Britain that starts on Saturday.
