Phew, that's it for another year... And for the fourth year running I was stood on the Champs Elysee to see Mark Cavendish take the sprint win.
Stage 20 of the Tour de France was, as is always the case with the final stage of the Tour, a procession. Champagne was drunk, photos were taken, and the peloton rolled along at an easy pace having a natter and generally being grateful that it was all over for another year!
A break of about 8 riders including Jens Voigt and Rui Costa had around 30 seconds on the bunch at one point but as the riders started the laps of the city centre, the sprinters teams came to the fore. Bradley Wiggins led the Sky train into the Place de la Concorde and Edvald Boasson Hagen took Cav to the final corner where the Manx man had to tackle the final 400m on his own.
Matt Goss was on his wheel and Peter Sagan made a late kick, but the Rainbow Jersey of the World Champion was three bike lengths clear.
Oh, and some guy called Wiggins won overall......
