Bradley Wiggins insists that there are many positives for the sport of cycling this year.

Tour de France winner and four-time Olympic gold medallist Bradley Wiggins has insisted that there is still a lot to celebrate in the sport of cycling, despite the recent Lance Armstrong scandal.

The revelations of a host of Armstrong's former teammates on the doping scandal has been a blow to the sport, but Wiggins said that he is keen to take the positives from recent cycling success.

"Ultimately there are still some fantastic things going on in this sport regardless of what certain people think," Sky Sports News quotes Wiggins as saying.

"I think we should celebrate that really because this one ain't built on sand and isn't going to crumble in 10 years' time."

Wiggins won gold at this year's Olympic time trial event.
