tdf - the finish .

The Tour de France ended on Sunday, and that means that a champion for 2012 has been crowned in the GC -- and this year, it goes out to Bradley Wiggins of Team Sky. Absolutely unbelievable what Team Sky has accomplished as a team this year -- putting a man on top in the GC along with Chris Froome in second. Two members on the podium and Cavendish adds a handful of more stage wins to his increasingly impressive repertoire of accomplishments.

Oddly enough the Olympics start the next week. That means for those who just enjoy action sports, that there is something else exciting in the upcoming week. For me, though, the end of the Tour is a sad day, because I'm no longer as motivated to get out there on the bike. And to be perfectly honest, the summer Olympics are quite boring -- gymnastics, swimming, running... ummmmm I'd much prefer bobsled, skeleton, alpine skiing and freestyle snow sports.

Wiggins has the honour of being the first EVER British cyclist to win the Tour de France, and due to that, he is going to be knighted! Admittedly, Sir Bradley Wiggins sounds quite royal.

Anyways, just a huge shout out to the Tour winners, Peter Sagan in the green jersey, Tejay Van Garderen in white, Wiggo in yellow, and Tommy Voeckler in the polka dots. Truly an impressive feat for you all! Looking forward to more bike races in the future, and of course, the 2013 TDF.
