Bradley Wiggins all but clinches Tour de France title by winning final time trial in Stage 19
CHARTRES, France (AP) ¯¯¯ Bradley Wiggins has won the final time trial of the Tour de France, all but locking up the title of the three-week race.
The Team Sky leader obliterated the pack in Saturday's 33-mile ride from Bonneval to Chartres. He is poised to become the first Briton to take home the yellow jersey.
The race against the clock in stage 19 set up what is likely to be a largely ceremonial ride onto the Champs-Elysees in Paris for Sunday's finale.
