The 2006 race near Buckingham Palace on 03 September 2006

This shot includes the Green Jersey, Yellow Jersey and King of the Mountains Jersey.
The man in green is Mark Cavendish and in the mountains jersey is Andy Schleck (far right) - both would figure as key riders in future Tour de France races 2-3 years later - but here the youngsters were hardly known outside the immediate cycling world.

The British tours have often had the benefit of young talented riders who in later years have progressed to world class.
