Sir Bradley Wiggins will miss the British Championships road race in Wales on Sunday because of an injury.

A Team Sky spokesman told BBC Wales the 34-year-old was out of the event in Abergavenny, though the exact nature of his injury was unclear.

Wiggins had been due to go for the double after winning the national time trial in Monmouthshire on Thursday.

On Friday, he was omitted from Team Sky's squad for this year's Tour de France which he won in 2012.
