Tour de France - Interview Wiggins: He left them for dead, didn't he?

Cav has waited a while for that and he's been patient and I think he's got his reward today and it showed the team commitment to him today. It's been difficult the last couple of weeks; we've had to put his goals and aspirations aside really. No one likes that... he's the world champion at the end of the day but it was nice that we could all do that for him today and give him another win  so it's fantastic. He's been the first to say, Look guys, I think the GC is more important today, let's not sacrifice it by trying to bring it back for a sprint.' As I said the other day, he's been a true champion and today we showed that we all wanted to repay him somehow. We've still got Sunday as well but today was fantastic. He has certainly improved his climbing and if you look at all those contenders for the Olympic road race there aren't many left really who you could say were in as good a shape as Mark... he certainly is the favourite. He's the fastest man in the world without doubt. He showed that he can go from 600 out we just watched it and he left them for dead, didn't he?
