July 21 update: The traditional flat, ceremonial stage with circuits on the Champs-Elysées in Paris. All the jerseys have been decided for a few days now so it's simply a matter of determining one final stage winner. Mark Cavendish will be shooting for his fourth (straight) final day sprint finish winner in Paris, more than anyone else in Tour history. And based on his impressive winning margin on Stage 18 when 'he left everyone for dead' according to Bradley Wiggins, you'd be a fool to bet against him.

In a clinical display of bike racing perfection, Team Sky and Bradley Wiggins is your 2012 overall winner. Thanks for tuning in — Steve
