Wiggins to skip World Championships for CWG

England's triple Olympic gold medallist Bradley Wiggins has said he will skip the road World Championships in Melbourne, Australia to concentrate on the Commonwealth Games to be held from October 3-14 here.

"I'm still doing the Commonwealth time trial but I'm not doing the Worlds. You'd have to go out (to Australia) a good chunk (of time) in advance and I just don't fancy it," the five-time World Champion Wiggins was quoted as saying in an interview to Cycling Weekly.

The 30-year-old Wiggins, who suffered a bike failure while on course for a world championship medal last year, has won three silver medals in the Commonwealth Games in 1998 and 2002.
