No doubt millions of cycling fans the world over have kept track of the progress of the Tour de France which has taken place over the past three weeks. This year marks the 99th year for this popular cycling event which concluded on Sunday with a 23 year old Bradley Wiggins of Britain taking the top honor. It had been 75 long years since Britain had taken the top spot on the podium of the Tour so it was a proud moment for his countrymen when Wiggins claimed the yellow cycling jersey for his country. Besides the extraordinary honor of winning the Tour de France, Wiggins is also expected to do well in the upcoming Olympics which will take place in London. Wiggins came into the Tour as the favorite of many but as those who follow this race know all too well, anything can happen to any of the riders at anytime. 2,100 miles is a lot of territory to cover and accidents tend to happen all along the way. The eyes of fans throughout the world will be on this young Brit as he strives to add to his impressive resume at the upcoming Olympics.
