Tour de Force

Well the Tour de France is over for another year. Superb. Congratulations to Bradley Wiggins for his 4th place overall and Mark Cavendish for his record number of stage wins including the final in Paris.

Special thanks must go to ITV4 for their excellent coverage. For those who never watched, it is the ultimate soap. The first night it is names and confusion over what is going on. The second some names and small themes reoccur. After that it is absorbing.

Somehow it is the psychology and complex game play. How different riders and different teams must co-operate in order for one of them to win. And within this and connected, the sub plots, the one upmanship, the power plays and politics.

Just all too much to describe, watch the highlights at ITV4
