MANCHESTER, England -- Bradley Wiggins chances of retaining his Tour de France title receded on Monday when teammate Chris Froome was named as Team Skys leader for cyclings biggest race. Authentic Phil Simms Jersey . Team principal Dave Brailsford ended months of speculation by saying the British-based outfit would stick to the plan set out at the start of the year, leaving Wiggins to play second fiddle to his compatriot when the Tour begins on June 29. "As always, the team selection is a management decision and it will be evidence-based," Brailsford said. "However it is crucial there is clarity of purpose and for that reason we will go to the Tour with one leader. "Taking that into consideration and given Chris step up in performances this year, our plan, as it has been since January, is to have him lead the Tour de France team." Wiggins, the Olympic time-trial champion, had left Team Sky in an awkward position last week when he said he was hoping to pull off a rare Giro dItalia-Tour de France double this year, despite Froome having long been lined up to be the teams No. 1 at the Tour after finishing runner-up in 2012. Froome reacted the same day by saying he had been "reassured by the management ... that I have their full backing" as Team Skys leader for the Tour. Froome is widely considered a better climber and has powered to overall victories at the Tour of Oman, Criterium International and Tour de Romandie this season. "Were in a fantastic position -- we have two of the best G (general classification) riders in the world and they are both great racers with a competitive will to win," Brailsford said. "Since the start of the season, Bradleys performance plan has focused around training specifically to try and win the Giro and then ride the Tour, whilst Chris has been focused on attempting to win the Tour." The Giro started on Saturday, with Wiggins helping Team Sky win the team time trial on Sunday.

Carey Price didnt, but he still came out on top against one of his rivals for the No. 1 job at the Sochi Games.

"It was great," New York coach Jack Capuano said after the Islanders lost 3-0 to the New Jersey Devils in the first NHL game played in the Barclays Center. Cory Schneider made 26 saves, Jacob Josefson scored the first NHL goal in Barclays Center history at 10:14 of the first period, and Patrik Elias and Steve Bernier added goals for New Jersey. Evgeni Nabokov made 22 saves for New York. The first NHL game played in Brooklyn drew a crowd of 14,689. Barclays Center holds 15,813 for hockey, although Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark envisions adding "100-300" seats as part of a "West End Club." Barclays seats 17,732 for college basketball and the NBAs Brooklyn Nets, and holds 19,000 for concerts. "When you sell over 13,000 for a preseason game, were thrilled," Yormark said. "We know we can sell hockey in Brooklyn. Twenty-six per cent of (the) ticket buyers are from Brooklyn." The Islanders will officially move into $1 billion arena before the 2015-16 season. Saturday nights exhibition game was a trial run to introduce the year-old building to fans, and Yormark said the response he received was overwhelmingly positive. "I walked every area of the building," he said. "I was stopped (by fans who said), Brett, we love the building. Brett, we love the building." Yormarks words were echoed by Islanders fans used to the 441-year-old Nassau Coliseum. Phil Simms Giants Jersey. "Great, beautiful building," said Frank Smarra, a self-proclaimed lifelong Islanders fan from Astoria, Queens. "(It is) clean, roomy. (It) generates a lot of excitement. "(Its) a whole new slate for the organization. I think things are finally falling into place." Smarra said the "45-minute" subway ride from Queens to Brooklyn was easy compared to driving and paying for parking at Nassau Coliseum. One of the Barclays selling points is its convenience, as 11 New York City bus and subway lines stop there, as does the Long Island Rail Road. When he spoke with reporters following the Islanders practice session at Barclays on Sept. 12, team owner Charles Wang reiterated that his team has a lease at the Nassau Coliseum for the next two seasons, but did not reject the notion of his team playing regular-season games in Brooklyn next year. While acknowledging he had to have discussions with team and building officials, Yormark did not dismiss the idea of Barclays playing host to regular-season games next season. "I have to sit with Charles (and) Bruce Ratner after (the game) tonight," Yormark said. "(But the) building is ready to be a host NHL venue." New York defenceman Travis Hamonic agreed. "But this obviously is going to be our home for a long time. So in my opinion the more games we play here (will be) awesome," Hamonic said. "Were looking forward to it. Its a great building, an unreal atmosphere and a great spot. So were going to be here for years to come."
