OLYMPIC Gold Medal cyclist Bradley Wiggins could be coming to Welshpool as part of the Tour of Britain after he was put on Team Sky's roster for the event.
The Tour De France winner is also rumoured to be joined by last years Tour of Brtian winner Mark Cavendish.
The two are rumoured to be on the Team Sky roster, although that could change right up until the event.
The Tour of Britain returns to Powys for a third successive year this September, as Welshpool hosts the start of Stage Six of Britain’s biggest professional cycle race.
Riders will depart from the National Trust’s Powis Castle at 10.15am on Friday, September 14, taking in a ceremonial lap of Welshpool town centre, before tackling a 189.6km route through the heart of Mid Wales to the finish in Caerphilly.
On the way through Powys almost 100 of the world’s top cyclists will race through Montgomery, Newtown (host to a stage start in 2010), Llandrindod Wells, Builth Wells and Brecon, before the SKODA King of the Mountains climb of the Brecon Beacons takes the race into South Wales.
