Cavendish did not win the tour de france. Also the tactics were spot on GB had to chase the breakaway to catch it so that it would end in a bunch sprint. However not enough teams shared the same goal; as a result after 250km the 4 GB domestiques were spent. Unlike continental races the teams are substantially smaller which only makes it harder to chase a breakaway. There was no more they could do, they cant stop breakaways forming.
I know! I just re-read that post. No idea why I put Cavendish, I knew it was Wiggins!! God, I am such a moron. One of those moments where you go off-track in the middle of typing and end up writing what you're thinking at that time.
Why am I so stupid?
Also, why exactly where we expecting the foreign teams to help us out? I don't get why they'd want to help Britain when they'd clearly want their own medals.
