Sir Bradley Wiggins IS The Doctor! (... Not really.)

But you can see it, can’t you?

The 100th Tour De France set off today, an event with a history of drama, tragedy, absurdity and of course cycling. It started in 1903 and carried on through a turbulent century, taking time off only for the World Wars. Sounds like the sort of thing a time traveller might want a good view of to me.

Favourite scandal: “In 1904 twelve riders, including winner Maurice Garin and all the stage winners, were disqualified for various reasons including illegal use of cars and trains.”
