Briton Wiggins will ride in the Spanish island from Feb. 3-6 and will also be competing at the Giro d’Italia in May before he defends his Tour de France title in June and July.

Team mate and compatriot Chris Froome, runner up in last year’s Tour, is set to begin his season at the Feb. 11-16 Tour of Oman and will ride the Criterium du Dauphine in June before he lines up alongside Wiggins for the world’s biggest race. (Writing by Tom Pilcher, Editing by Justin Palmer)
