Bradley Wiggins: winner of the Tour De France 2012

Olympic gold medallistBradley Wiggins re-wrote the history books by becoming the first British rider to win the Tour De France.  It was a great day for British cycling all round as the brilliant Chris Froome took 2nd place overall and fellow Olympian Mark Cavendish won the final stage, sprinting down the Champs Elysees to share the glory.
There was to be no last day agony for Wiggins, who safely negotiated himself around Paris , to complete the formalities after Saturday's awesome  time-trial victory gave him an almost untouchable lead.
