The present, past & future of cycling. Bradley Wiggins, Cadel Evans and Tejay Garderen.

7/21/12 Bradley Wiggins wins the final Time Trial in the 2012 Tour de France, sealing his victory. Cadel Evans, defending champion, conceded even more time, and Tejay Van Garderen at just 23 years old, comes in a remarkable 5th place overall. The scene was chaotic; half of the UK must have come across the chunnel in the past day or two to cheer on Wiggins, the first-ever Brit to win the TdF. It was not unlike the Lance Armstrong years, when thousands of Americans would invade France for a week or two in July. I came, I rode, I took pictures. Same as it ever was, but different. It's time for the older to pass things on to the younger, and nowhere was that more apparent than on my rides in France with my son. First time I've been totally on the ropes and he was flying. It's a good thing. Right? --Mike
