PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Bradley Wiggins said Saturday he still doesn’t know if he will ride in the Tour de France.

“I’d love to be on the start in Britain,” said Wiggins, the 2012 Tour de France champion. “But it’s about Chris (Froome) being confident in the team.”

Froome, Wiggins’ teammate on Sky, won last year when Wiggins did not compete.

Froome finished second to Wiggins in the 2012 race.

The Tour de France begins July 5 in Yorkshire.

“It’s very much Chris’ team,” said Wiggins, the Tour of California leader entering the final stage Sunday. “It depends on who he wants around him. We have such a deep team. I’ve been on the path for (Paris Roubaix) and this (Tour of Califorrnia), and I haven’t really known what would come after this.”

The 34-year-old British rider, the 2012 Olympic time trial winner, is in his last year of his current contract with Sky.
