A great day for

Britsh Sport.

British Team Sky
Not only did Bradley Wiggins become the first British athlete to win the Tour de France,

not only did Mark Cavendish win the Champs-Elysees sprint,

not only did team-mate Chris Froom take second place in the Tour,

the British team did it in style.

Wiggins leads Cavendish onto the Champs-Elysees
 With a km to go and the Arc de Triumph in the background, Bradley Wiggins took the lead along the Champs-Elysees with Mark Cavendish at his rear wheel. With 600m to go, Wiggins peeled away, leaving the way clear for World Champion Mark Cavendish to sprint across the finishing line for his fourth final-stage win in four years..

Teamwork was the number one reason for Team Sky's victory in 2012.
