MILAN (AP) - Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins has confirmed he will make the Giro d'Italia his main priority this year and support Sky teammate Chris Froome at the Tour.

Wiggins tells race organizer Gazzetta dello Sport that the Giro "is my new challenge, my inspiration, the new fire burning inside me. I think winning it, for certain aspects, will be more difficult than winning the Tour."

Wiggins also won the time trial at last year's London Olympics, and the Giro route should favor Wiggins' ability at racing against the clock.

Beginning in Naples on May 4 and ending in Brescia on May 26, the Giro features three time trials for a total of 57 miles.
