    Oakley cyclist Bradley Wiggins has put in too much hard work over the past winter to let a small mechanical problem ruin his performance at the Tour of Romandie. Wiggins overcame an issue with his bike chain at the beginning of the climb at Crans-Montana to ride to the overall victory. Beginning the day nine seconds behind Spanish leader Luis Leon, Wiggins was aided by his Team Sky teammates, led by world champion Mark Cavendish. Finishing Sunday’s final 10.25 mile circuit stage in a time of 28 minutes, 56 seconds, Wiggins was able to secure the overall tour title with a combined time of 18 hours, 5 minutes, 40 seconds.
