Wiggins: "I sort of lost concentration. Froome was egging me on. But I knew everyone was behind."
Wiggins: "You'd bet your house on me not losing that sort of time in the time trial. But you only need one second to win the Tour."

@climblikeaslug "Suddenly not so in the mood for Paris on Saturday… what a joke!"
And nevermind that fact that the Tour ends on Sunday, not Saturday.
Sunday: When we get to see the yellow jersey leading out the World Champon the Champs Elysees. So excited right now!
