Vive Bradley Wiggins!

With Andrew Murray out of Wimbledon, where can we look for a British sporting hero?

For the amazingly high percentage of the British population who are unaware, the sporting event that many consider the world's greatest started today - the
96th Tour de France. What's more, a Brit - 29 year-old Bradley Wiggins (19'51")from Chorley in Lancashire - has done really rather well, coming in third after Fabian Cancellara and Alberto Contador.

Allez, let's have a British tour winner this year!

It's far too early to make any predictions as to who might be awarded the winner's trophy in three weeks' time - predicting Tour winners is virtually impossible at any rate, since anything could happen to race favourites in the 3500 miles ahead - but let's hope that there's a Brit on the podium this year.

Vive Wiggins! Allez allez allez!
