Could a Belgian win the Tour de France 2012?


As Britain prepares to get the Union Jack flags out for their first ever winner of the epic cycling event, there may be a few Belgians reflecting on the fact that Bradley was actually born in Ghent back in 1980. His father was an Australian cyclist and his mother was English. 

Eventually the couple split and mother Linda returned to London where in the course of time young Bradley picked up his interest in cycling and at 12 years old started racing at south London’s Herne Hill Velodrome.
