A proud and emotional Dave Brailsford thanked the British cycling fans who lined the streets in France after he masterminded Bradley Wiggins' historic Tour de France success.
Brailsford set out ambitious plans for Team Sky three years ago, aiming to win the Tour de France within five years with a clean British rider. In Paris on Sunday, his aim came to fruition.
He told Ned Boulting: "I am emotional, you know, I am thrilled. When I started cycling, it was just a small sport, nobody else did it, so you had to find someone else who liked it as well, it was like an underworld type of thing.
"I think what the team have done, the guys have done, the Olympic riders have done, and now Bradley capping it off here, it's just ... To see all the union jacks and all the people who are here, it's a real proud moment.
"The level of support is phenomenal. I'd just like to thank everybody for coming over for coming and supporting Bradley, supporting the team, supporting Mark, I hope we can build on what we've done and move forward.
"What drives me ... I just want to know that amongst my little peer group of sports managers that they think I do a good job."
