Wiggins claims Dunkirk prologue
Bradley Wiggins
Wiggins is targeting the Tour de France prologue in London
Bradley Wiggins earned his first major time-trial win as a professional when he stormed to victory in the opening stage of the Four Days of Dunkirk race.

The 27-year-old Englishman covered the 9km course in 10mins 39.2secs, 12secs faster than France's William Bonnet.

It is the second strong time-trial result for Wiggins, the Olympic and world pursuit champion, in a month.

The Cofidis rider finished second to Andreas Kloden in the Circuit de la Sarthe's prologue in April.

606: DEBATE

Wiggins, who claimed his second world pursuit title in March, is among the favourites for the Tour de France's prologue in Hyde Park, London, on 7 July.

Prior to Tuesday's victory in northern France, Wiggins, who has four Olympic medals to his name, had only ever won time-trial stages on the road in the Tour de France of the Future (for riders under 25) and the Circuit de Lorraine.
