Hola! Back in Spain for the World Championship Time Trials. Wonderful setting in Ponferrada, today’s race was all about the contest between three-time champion, Tony Martin and Great Britain’s hero, Sir Bradley Wiggins. I can’t be unbiased here, I’m a huge fan of Sir Bradley and he rode a storming race to take his first World Championship title. With a modest ‘thumbs up’ as he saw his victory confirmed, he also announced that this would be his last time trial. A great way to leave! Go Wiggo! Here are my drawings:
Stage 20 – The final stage began in glorious sunshine, with greetings between teams, team-mates, opponents and champions. The stage ended with the most heart-stopping race around the Champs-Élysées. A magnificent stage win for Mark Cavendish, helped by the brilliant gentleman in yellow. Wiggins a worthy winner and champion and Britain’s first. Here are my last drawings of this momentous event.
