Brits on Tour
Tom Simpson, Chris Boardman and Sean Yates
With the Tour de France starting in Britain for the first time, it is fitting the race has its biggest British contingent, five, for 20 years.

Mark Cavendish, David Millar, Geraint Thomas, Charlie Wegelius and Bradley Wiggins are the men flying the flag and, while none of them is likely to claim a first outright victory for GB in the race, stage wins are a distinct possibility.

Millar, in fact, is one of only four Brits - Tom Simpson (left), Chris Boardman (centre) and Sean Yates (right) - to wear the yellow jersey.

He and Wiggins will be fighting for the honour in Saturday's prologue. What price Cavendish following it with a sprint win on Sunday?
