Bradley Wiggins finished in 21st place on his competitive rowing debut at the British Indoor Championships in London.

Wiggins, who retired from cycling in December 2016 as a five-time Olympic champion, was competing in the elite men’s 2,000m race.

He began slowly after mistakenly believing he had false started, before finishing in six minutes 22.5 seconds, while Adam Neil won in 5:48.2
