Tour de France victory for Britain

32-year-old Bradley Wiggans, of North London, is the first Briton to win the Tour de France.

Whoo hoo! Congrats to Bradley Wiggans, for winning this year’s Tour de France – and being the first Briton ever to do so! It’s a historic achievement and I can only imagine the exuberance and pride that must be filing the U.K. this week.

Yesterday’s Daily Telegraph piece from writer Ian Chadband put the win in some perspective: “It is hard to imagine that any performance in the Olympic Games, which open on Friday, could possibly match the magnitude of his achievement in this 2,172-mile epic.”

Epic! Well done, Bradley Wiggans. You’ve made Great Britain very proud!
