I've had a quick scan and can't find a thread on Le Tour which is surprising especially as there are two Brits doing quite well currently. Never min that Armstrong is having another go. Mark Cavendish is consistently being called arrogant after his post race/stage interviews but after having watched some of his finishes this tour there is no doubt he is the best finisher in the Tour at the minute. It looks as if he'll need to improve his all round game if he wants to win the Green Jersey. Which dovetails nicely with Bradley Wiggins who has surprised a few of the Brit commentators with being able to keep up with the big boys and is currently sitting in 4th leading into the Alps and the final week. Apparently this marked improvement is due to the fact that since the Olympics he's lost 7kgs in weight whilst keeping the same power output therefore he's got less to lug up the hills. This has just been a bit of a heads up to anyone who is interested who has not managed to keep up to date with the Tour. Thursday's stage is an individual time trial and Wiggins must be in with a shout. And next Sunday with the run-in to Paris normally being a last flourish for the sprinters Cavendish has this targeted as his fifth stage win in the Tour which would set a new British record.
