Thousands of Brits have expressed their delight at Bradley Wiggins’ Tour de France win, but also admitted that they are ‘mentally and physically drained’ after pretending to be interested in cycling for a whole week.
‘It was a long, hard slog. The highlights alone were tough going, and the live coverage was probably the most gruelling thing I’ve ever done.’ said one newly converted cycling ‘fan’ from Stoke, ‘I got through it in the end though and the commentators said that Wiggins had made history, so I’m glad I was there to pretend to be happy for him.’
‘I had no fucking idea what was going on most of the time, but the important thing is that some bloke I’d never heard of a couple of weeks ago won. And it’s all good practice for the Olympics, where I can continue to watch obscure events just because somebody British might win something I don’t really give a shit about.’
