Wiggins returns to competitive sport at indoor rowing champs

LONDON — Bradley Wiggins is returning to competitive sport for the first time since retiring from cycling, with the former Tour de France champion taking part in British Rowing's indoor championships next month.

British Rowing said on Friday that the 37-year-old Wiggins will compete in a 2,000-meter race in the Dec. 9 event at the velodrome where cycling was staged during the London Olympics in 2012.

Wiggins retired from cycling last year after winning a fifth Olympic gold in the Rio de Janeiro Games. He has since enjoyed rowing on an indoor machine for fitness, sharing images of his workouts on social media.

Wiggins this week said he was put through "living hell" over the past year while U.K. Anti-Doping investigated allegations of wrongdoing in cycling, which centered on the contents of a medical package delivered to Wiggins at the 2011 Dauphine Libere race in France.

No charges will be brought by UKAD and Wiggins denounced what he perceived as a "malicious witch hunt."
