Briton Wiggins makes history in yellow

PARIS. July 23. KAZINFORM Much like buses coming in twos and threes, Britain found itself Sunday in the unprecedented position of having not just one but two cyclists on the 2012 Tour de France podium, CNN informed.

Against the backdrop of the Champs Elysees and resplendent in yellow -- the jersey that denotes the Tour winner -- Bradley Wiggins will deservedly take the plaudits for becoming the first Briton to win the most prestigious cycling race in the world.

But the presence of second-placed Froome is testament to an organizational effort that has ensured Team Sky has steamrollered its way past all the opposition.

Wiggins claimed his second stage win on the Tour as he sealed his overall victory Saturday in an individual time trial.

Froome also won a mountain stage and forged his reputation as a Tour de France winner in his own right in the near future.

While their teammate Mark Cavendish sprinted to victory on the final stage in Paris for his third stage victory and 23rd overall on the Tour as Team Sky's domination was complete.
