Sir Bradley Wiggins happy with silver

Sir Bradley Wiggins says that he is happy with silver in the men's individual time trial in the Road World Championships in Tuscany.

Sir Bradley Wiggins has said that he is happy with his silver medal in the men's individual time trial at the Road World Championships.

The 33-year-old finished 46 seconds behind defending champion Tony Martin, who captured his third title in a row in Tuscany.

Wiggins said that his end-of-season form, which saw him victorious in the recent Tour of Britain, sets him up perfectly for next year.

"There is always a tinge of disappointment because you can't be world champ but in the same time you have to accept when you are beaten by a better athlete on the day," the 2012 Tour de France champion told reporters.

"I'm pretty happy. It's been a long summer but quite a successful one with the win in Poland, the Tour of Britain and this.

"It's a great platform to go through the winter and to next year."

Switzerland's Fabian Cancellara was beaten into third place by two seconds.
