7:11 am on 30 June 2012

Bradley Wiggins is in a unique place for a British cyclist - the Team Sky leader is the favourite to finish first in cycling's top event, the Tour de France, in three weeks' time in Paris.

Wiggins has never won the Tour but he says he's been dreaming of it all his life.

He says he guesses most little kids in England dream of lifting the FA Cup but the Belgium-born 32-year-old says the Tour is his Wembley.

Wiggins has won three of the major stage races on the 2012 calendar - Paris-Nice, Tour de Romandie and Criterium du Dauphine.
