Three-time Olympic champion Bradley Wiggins will make his debut for Team Sky at the Tour of Qatar, which starts on 7 February.

Wiggins had a superb 2009, capped by finishing fourth in the Tour de France.

He launched his season last year by taking the leader's jersey in the Tour of Qatar after his team won the time trial opening stage.

Wiggins, 29, had been scheduled to make his debut in France on 3 February but Italian Davide Vigano will now fill in.


Wiggins will be supported at the Tour of Qatar, in what the team says is a "strong" line-up, by the likes of Edvald Boasson Hagen, Juan Antonio Flecha and Kurt-Asle Arvesen.

Fellow British riders Russell Downing, Geraint Thomas and Ian Stannard will also be in action for Sky.
