"That gives me perspectives," the happy winner told HLN. "AS a matter of fact, it has been a while since I won in a time trial. Two years to be exact, at the Circuit de Lorraine."
"I hope that the weather in London is better than it was here," he continued. "That was an awful wind."
The Englishman is looking forward to today's stage. "I start with the pink leader's jersey. This race may have lost some of its lustre with the arrival of the ProTour, but it is still a great win."
