Top 3 Sporting Events of the Year for me! 3-Commonwealth Games Road Race-I was there and I saw the peleton go past 14 times and seen one of the last great races of David Millar's career. It was also amazing to be in Glasgow for the games and being able to drink five pints and eat a meal in between watching the race on TV and seeing them in person 14 times as they went past the pub was immense. (Tour De France was a close second as we had a massive adventure going out to see it that day 127 miles due to a Garmin Mishap!) 2-The World Cup we really needed a good one after the absolutely toiletworthy one in 2010 and this World Cup was immense just amazing games Holland thrashing Spain, Costa Rica, Germany thrashing Brazil and so so many great performances. 1-The Tour Of Flanders in my first full year of being into cycling properly I have to say this year's Tour of Flanders was probably one of the greatest sporting things I've ever seen.
