Bradley Wiggins Wins Le Tour de France 2012

This is Bradley Wiggins going past MY HOUSE during his iconic win in the Tour de France... the first British rider to win Le Tour... ever! This is the photo I took of him going past the house... Get the flags!

There was a pro photographer who took some great pictures of Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome... his shot was in several Sunday papers including The Observer and The Independent! It was also used online by The Mail and The Guardian... here are the links if you're interested:

Congratulations Bradley, Chris, Mark and all the riders of Team Sky on a VERY successful Tour! Also congrats to all the other British riders!

This photo is brilliant! I used to love going to watch the Tour when I lived in France and watching it all day on the TV, you really feel part of the whole experience.

Oh wow Shelly, how lucky are you to have seen Bradley Wiggins cycling to glory past your house AMAZING. Not forgetting Chris Froome also. He so thoroughly deserved his victory. Nexy, BRING ON THE OLYMPICS, I cant wait. Doesn't it make you PROUD to be BRITISH.
Hope you are keeping well sweetie.
