Bradley Wiggins wins the Tour de France
There is no sporting event that is harder than the Tour de France. Today Bradley Wiggins became the first Briton to win it, although the result is was a foregone conclusion. At the moment of his crowning, did Mr Wiggins milk the moment for the cameras and posterity? Nope, he was thanking and respecting his fans. A lesson for us all. He deserves a knighthood. I am not a big fan of the honours system, as it rewards time serving politicians in the main who have never achieved anything. When someone such as Bradley Wiggins wins, it gives us all a lift. Let's give the man the honour he deserves and give us all the chance to appreciate what he has done. Well done dude.
