Bradley McGee
MCGEE FACTFILE
Bradley McGee
DOB: 24/2/76
Nationality: Australian
Best Tour: 2002 - stage seven win
It is not often that riders manage to get the jump on the leading sprinters.

But McGee pulled it off in some style on stage seven of last year's race.

With only a few hundred metres remaining he pulled clear of the peloton and just managed to hold off being caught by the top sprinters.

This time the Australian will be a marked man should he try to pull off a similar feat, but he has a genuine belief he can repeat the feat during the 2003 race.

McGee is in the relative infancy of his career and has yet to reach his peak as a rider.

But he believes he has the makings of a team leader at FDJeux.com and is capable of being a future winner of the Tour.

Despite finishing 109th, more than two-and-a-half hours behind Lance Armstrong, he argues he has yet to bother to push in the general classification.

He recently told the BBC Sport website: "I'm happy to see Lance winning the next couple and then I'll think more seriously about the general classification.

"I believe I have the ability and, by then, I should be hitting my peak as a rider. Wearing the yellow jersey remains the ultimate goal."
