What a weekend for British Cycling. I’m sure you all heard Brad won the Tour De France. He dominated from the start but I did feel a cuddly toy Lion was a bit of a cheap prize. Lets hope he, along with the rest of the GB team can bring home the goods over the coming weeks. Cav might even get one, after all he was the only guy who didn’t bag himself a medal in the cycling team four years ago.

The Open ended in dramatic style. It was surely a day to forget for Adam Scott, losing it in the last four holes to Ernie Els. The Highest Brit finished 5th and Tiger looked like he was returning to some form.

I’m sure we’re all looking forward to the Opening Ceremony; bring on the buses, farm animals and kilts. It is really just around the corner now…my prediction; 54 medals. You can quote me on that…
