Much like buses coming in twos and threes, Britain found itself Sunday in the unprecedented position of having not just one but two cyclists on the 2012 Tour de France podium.
Against the backdrop of the Champs Elysees and resplendent in yellow -- the jersey that denotes the Tour winner --will deservedly take the plaudits for becoming the first Briton to win the most prestigious cycling race in the world.
But the presence of second-placed Froome is testament to an organizational effort that has ensured Team Sky has steamrollered its way past all the opposition.
Wiggins claimed his second stage win on the Tour as he sealed his overall victory Saturday in an individual time trial.
Froome also won a mountain stage and forged his reputation as a Tour de France winner in his own right in the near future.
While their teammatesprinted to victory on the final stage in Paris for his third stage victory and 23rd overall on the Tour as Team Sky's domination was complete.
"Who knows," he replied. "These are different times with different riders, sometimes I raced too much and usually there were never enough rest periods. It was difficult to prepare well because the thinking used to be one race after another.
"It's like trying to compare eras and champions. The best riders of each era are at the top because of the talent, commitment, intelligence and suffering they cope with."
Regardless of his teammates' performances and the peerless tactical guidance he has received, Wiggins' win in a race many professionals struggle to finish should not be belittled.
"It takes commitment to be a professional cyclist and the Tour de France will push you to your absolute limits," insisted Millar.
"If you do well it's a fantastic feeling and it makes the tiredness and mental fatigue justifiable. It's only later you fully realize what's happened when you've had a bit of time to reflect, if you've achieved something that'll go down in history then you can be happy with yourself.
"Then you start planning for the next step, improving, making sure you are staying at that level everyone else is aiming for."
