Thoughts on TdF Stage 20

1. As expected, Wiggins crushed the field, winning by more than a minute over the second-place rider, his teammate Chris Froome.

2. Also as expected, no change in the final podium, and only one change in the top-ten, as Zubeldia moved past Evans into sixth place.

3. All that remains is the celebratory ride into Paris for Wiggins to give the UK it's first ever Tour de France champion. Not a bad gift for the UK as London prepares to host the Olympics. Meanwhile, Kenya will have a second-place finisher in Chris Froome (although he will ride in the Olympics for England). 

4. Tomorrow's stage will be worth watching not only for the pageantry but also for the furious final sprint, where Team Sky will attempt to put a cherry on top of the race by delivering Mark Cavendish to the stage win.
