    The English cycling press have been talking it up for months, the “big show down” between Olympic pursuit champion, Bradley Wiggins and former Prologue winner David Millar.

    It’s like when you go home after a six day race or you end a relationship, you think you’ll feel better when it’s over, but it doesn’t, it just feels hollow and sad. I broke-off my affair with Le Tour in a car park at Saint-Meen-le-Grand on Sunday, at 12.50 pm local time.
