Bradley Wiggins Wins 2012 Tour de France as Mark Cavendish Takes Final Stage

Bradley Wiggins became the first British cyclist to win the Tour de France by protecting the yellow jersey during Sunday's final processional ride into Paris. He also helped Sky teammate Mark Cavendish earn his fourth straight sprint victory on the Champs-Elysees.

2012 Vuelta a Espana starts on August 18 - just one week after the London Olympics - and Roadcycling.com offers complete coverage of the event - including video highlights from all stages.

While it is too late for the team to win all three Grand Tours this season, Team Sky's Chris Froome remains one of the favorites to take the overall victory in this year's Vuelta a Espana.
