British cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins will make his return to racing at the Tour of Poland.

The 33-year-old 2012 Tour de France champion and four-time Olympic champion has been named in Team Sky's squad for the race, which begins on Saturday.

Wiggins withdrew from May's Giro d'Italia with a knee injury and chest infection, which then ruled him out of the 100th Tour de France.

Team-mate Chris Froome inherited his Tour title in Paris last Sunday.

Wiggins is joined in the Team Sky squad by Britons Luke Rowe and Ben Swift, Colombian duo Sergio Henao and Rigoberto Uran and American Danny Pate.

The first stage takes place in Italy, with Krakow the finish seven days later.
