As well as watching the final half hour of the Open later, I hope to see the final pedal rotations of Bradley Wiggins and his super-domestique Chris Froome on the Champs-Elysees in Paris.
The last time two riders from the same national finished first and second in the Tour was 1984 when Laurent Fignon finished ahead of Bernard Hinault.
At speeds of up to 68mph on occasions, these two men deserve their victories.
The convention on the Tour is never to challenge the holder of the coveted Yellow Jersey on the final day's ride into the centre of Paris, meaning Wiggins can't lose now unless disaster strikes.
As Wiggins said yesterday, "The job is done, almost." Congratulation gentlemen.
