Brit could make Tour de France history

Bradley Wiggins looks poised to win, in what would be a first for a British rider in the cycle race.

    Spectators seated near the finish line at the Tour de France in Paris may very likely get to see a piece of cycling history.

    This is the 99th time the race has been held since 1903 and no British rider has ever won it.

    But that could change with triple Olympic champion Bradley Wiggins who, on paper, is already hurtling towards the title.

    Al Jazeera's Matt Rumsey reports from Paris.
