Cyclist Wiggins hints at extending career

The Associated Press Bradley Wiggins has hinted that he might extend his cycling career after winning what was expected to be his final professional race.

Wiggins, the most decorated Olympian in British history, won the Ghent Six Days event in Belgium on Sunday with Mark Cavendish on the boards of the ’t Kuipke velodrome where, as a child, he had watched his father compete.

After his victory, the 2012 Tour de France winner hinted he might not hang up his bike for good after coming out on top of a thrilling three-way battle in the final Madison race of the cycling marathon.

“I always said that this would be my final send-off, to come here and race Ghent for one last time,” said Wiggins, who also won the race in 2003 in the city where he was born 36 years ago.
