This is not a 100,000-word, minute-by-minute, blow-by-blow account of the 2011 Tour de France.
This is not the story of Cadel Evans.
This is not the story of Alberto Contador, Andy Schleck, or Bradley Wiggins.
And it's not even the story of Mark Cavendish.

Actually nothing about how Cav won the green jersey, but an entertaining and witty digital short on the 2011 TdF.

Short but entertaining. There isn't a huge amount of race related content, but I really enjoy Ned's writing style. It's a nice insight into life around the race which we wouldn't otherwise get.

Short account of the 2011 Tour de France through a reporter's eyes. Funny, witty, celebration of British cycling and its stars.
