    He already advertises Fred Perry.

    Does it make it better or worse that most of the French seem to be incredibly bitter and pissed off about it? Reading the comments on l’equipe and 95% are calling him a drugs cheat or an unworthy winner of a boring tour.

    Amazing performance though – and he lives ‘down the road’ in Chorley. πŸ™‚

    Did we ever find out what the winning raffle numbers were?? πŸ˜•

    Absolutely amazing, was out of my chair screaming for Cav to win today. British cycling have done an amazing job one of the best tours I’ve ever watched.

    Well done mutton chops Brad.

    and I’m also going to put a well done in for Millar for the stage win, an ex doper pulled it out of the bag too.

    Remember this?

    Great result, Cav’s a legend… Wiggins needs to win it again to get there, though πŸ™‚

    Wiggins needs to win it again to get there, though

    I honestly believe he’d have won it last year had he not crashed out.

    Good to see Sky learn from that and reap the benefits, brilliant.

    Quite possibly, look how Cuddles did this year πŸ™‚

    Still, to be a legend you need to either a) do it against the odds or b) do it repeatedly. First Brit to win is cool, but to my mind has yet to qualify for legendary status.

    Reading articles on the beeb and that, they were saying the French seemed to quite like him. They even started calling him Le Gentleman.

    Can I add, Dave Brailsford for PM (and Shane Sutton for home secretary!)

    What an amazing achievement. Well done Wiggo, Froome, Cav and the whole team Sky.

    Don’t forget, if it goes to plan we could have the World Champ, the TdF winner, the Olympic Road Race champ and the Olympic TT champ all british in ten days time.

    For a nation with ‘no’ cycling heritage that wouldn’t be bad.

    And that’s before the track boys and girls go to work.

    I wonder if Dave Brailsford fancies a serious go at MTB next?

    I know you probably mean XC, but would be fascinating to see Brailsford working with Danny, Gee and Marc to take on Gwin.

    are you suggesting that reading the comments of loud mouthed opinionated people on an internet [foruum] may not actually be reflective of the country at large……MADNESS

    I think it was all ruined by Lesley Garrett…..Bloody Awful singing and the dress.

    πŸ™‚ As for the results EXTRA AWESOME.

    and another downer… who’s going to get the coverage for next year $KY πŸ˜‰

    Does Wiggo’s beak nose give him an unfair aerodynamic advantage?

    Wiggo is the first person to win Romandie, P-N and Dauphine in one year though. You’ve missed plenty off his palmares….. he won the Prologue of the Giro in 2010, finished 3rd at the Vuelta last year etc

    First to win in Paris I think.

    What a bloody great day. πŸ™‚

    Never thought I’d see it, never in a million years. Massive lump in my throat watching the MJ lead out his sprinter.

    All for one and one for all eh my Gallic chums? πŸ˜‰

    Quite right that Garrett is getting a load of abuse….but did anyone see that yank (American ambassador to France?) presenting on the podium!? What a scruffy f*ck!

    IanMunro

    I still haven’t worked that one out. I’d have thought the ambassador would have put some effort to put some clothes on, and a quick google earlier showed that the current ambassador is definitely someone else, so no idea who that dude was.

    I could have got it wrong, pretty sure he was American, it would explain the sartorial faux pas.

    Looked like the 100m runner Maurice Greene.
