The UCI confirmed last week that the cyclist’s run of seven successive Tour de France wins would not be reallocated, but those won in his ‘comeback’ years (2009, 2010) will. 

A spokesperson said, “In 2009 the placing of Mr Armstrong will be reallocated. Bradley Wiggins is the third-placed rider for the Tour de France, 2009.”
