I saw that tweet, then it mysteriously dissapeared.

EDIT: Now only confirmed followers can read them, there must have been some backlash

Although Hyenas is too kind...parasites more like it!!

I'm not surprised by that level of abuse from car drivers: its normal, for goodness sake. I shouted at one today who cut me up when he turn across traffic lights: what did he do? put the finger up at me. Was I bothered? No, it just felt normal.
What I do NOT like is Wiggins getting abuse from fellow cyclists in this instance: totally pathetic, some posters should be ashamed of themselves

Because looking at all reactions, Wiggins is people's favourite by a marginal distance over Murray so far.

I hope Murray takes it. He's made such an improvement this year. Wiggins' victory isn't that special, it's only 7 years since an idiot of at least equal size on the Tour

If Murray would've won Wimbledon it would be very easy to say
