...the icing and the hundred and thousands. The toppings on the cake of British road cycling have just been piling up this year, with Bradley Wiggins adding the Olympic time trial gold yesterday.
...even worse to watch. It was excruciating watching Great Britain - no Team GB here - being thwarted by their own success in the men's road race on the first full day of the Olympics. Not just because Mark Cavendish didn't have a chance to win.
...not 9 months. Been reading a few people disagreeing that Bradley Wiggins victory in the Tour de France is the top sporting achievement by a Brit. His addition of Le Tour to three other race wins means he's done something no other rider has ever achieved.
...for the perfect finish. Mark Cavendish owns the Champs-Élysées and it was up to Bradley Wiggins in the yellow jersey to make sure he won for the fourth straight time in the Tour's final stage.
...a day early. It's meant to be the final run in to Paris that's the procession for the wearer of the yellow jersey, Bradley Wiggins put it in a day early to leave the rest of field in his wake.
...The Tour. It's not Le Tour de France any more it's The Tour of France. With Bradley Wiggins in yellow and Mark Cavendish winning Britain's fifth stage.
...gargling waiting for her appearance? Was that grin on the face of Bradley Wiggins as he crossed the finish line 3rd on stage 17 an indication she should be singing very shortly?
...a rider is done for drugs. This time round it comes as a shock when announced last years 3rd placed rider Frank Schleck had failed a drugs test.
...deux. Where were we? Oh that's right Tommy had just won the first stage after the last rest day and Bradley Wiggins was rocking the yellow jersey.
...Voeckler. After last years heroic efforts by Thomas Voeckler in the Tour de France it was great to see him beat his injuries and win stage 10 of this year's race.
...one. While the nation and the mass media obsess about a gurning, crybaby Scottish loser Britain is excelling yet again in a Grand Tour, with Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome in the Tour de France.
...Bradley Wiggins. After his victory in the Critérium du Dauphiné he's the first cyclist to win the treble of Paris-Nice, Romandie and Dauphiné.
...track. Britain's track cycling produced yet another quality performance in the Track Cycling World Championship over the last few days in Melbourne.
...and thankfully the British public got it right. A Mark Cavendish was crowned BBC Sports Personalty of the year with nearly 50% of the vote.
...in Cav we trust. Britain has only it's second ever cycling road race men's pro World Champion. Mark Cavendish the best in the business.
