"No, I follow orders at all costs. I'm part of the team and I have to do what the team asks me to do... Bradley is just as strong as me and stronger than me in the time-trials."
"You realise you can win the Tour?" a journalist asked.
"... Maybe one day," he replied. "We feel you're able to win the Tour," another persisted moments later.
"Thanks for the compliment, but I think Bradley's in a better position," Froome said.
Asked in his post-race press conference what he felt at the moment Froome attacked, Wiggins said "I was really concentrating on my effort and keeping it constant, I'd been riding for two kilometres beforehand... I didn't want to make any more of an acceleration but there was a lot of noise, a lot of things going on the radio and a bit of confusion at that point."
"He showed today that he certainly had the legs. It was another great day for the team," Wiggins added.
