Infographics highlight Team Sky's Tour de France in numbers

As Bradley Wiggins aims to head to Paris in yellow, sponsor IG Markets showcases the numbers involved in Team Sky's Tour...

Assuming Bradley Wiggins survives today's final mountain stage of the Tour de France without mishap, we'll almost certainly be celebrating Britain's first ever winner of the race come Sunday. It would be a huge achievement, and one that even the wildest optimist wouldn't have predicted just 18 months ago. If he wins, it won't just be due to the efforts of the eight team mates who began the race alongside him in Liege. A full supporting staff will also have played their role, and will have dealt with some mind-boggling numbers - can you picture what 3,000 bidons look like? Here, thanks to Team Sky sponsor IG Makets, are two infographics detailing the team's 2012 race in numbers.
