Default Bradley's burns made them believe

I have read a number of times that one of the biggest influences to success in sport is believing rather than hoping victory is possible.

Now you guys in the US have been winning so much for so often its almost innate, yet in the UK we have for so long been the guys who under perform against form.

That was of course until a little man with big side burns turned the sporting world on its head by winning the Tour de France, which 5 years ago, before team sky and Dave Brailsford was about as likely as me beating Ian Thorpe's 400m time.

Since then Team GB met and exceeded all its hopes in the Olympics, Andy Murray wins gold and then the US open and then this week the ryder cup?

So how long does the wave of optimism fuelled success last? and can we quantify the effect of Bradley Wiggins win on everything that followed?
