Personally I was thrilled to see Chris Boardman in Paris that year. It was a real achievement for time trial specialist to complete the Tour, having dragged himself over the mountains, much like Mark Cavendish has this Tour.
What a fantastic end to the Tour and a great lead up to the 2012 Olympics - all this and sunshine too! I am now going to enjoy some of that sun and will raise a glass or two to Team Sky and all of the British riders (can't forget David Millar who also won a stage of the TDF and is part of Team GB). Vive le Tour! Tomorrow is going to be a real comedown - what will we do without the Tour? Oh yes, we have the Olympics to look forward to - yay (again)!
