From this Tuesday the law of California has ruled that the drivers will have to give enough space to the cyclist that is about 36”. The officials of law enforcement in Sacramento are hoping that they will not have to issue tickets like before now that the law has passed. The local patrol of California highway and the police of Sacramento have commented that they will see one case at a time if the driver is seen not providing enough space to a cyclist.

The spokesperson of CHP in north Sacramento said that if they notice a deriver not abiding the laws even though he could have given the cyclist a space of about 3 feet, he is definitely going to get a ticket. He is hopeful that all the drivers will co-operate with them and the law so that they do not have to take any steps. The minimum fine for not abiding this new law is $35 but the cost of court and other additional fees make that fine go up to $238. If the cyclist is injured in the process the fine can go as high as $982.

Sir Bradley Wiggins expressed deep insult over Chris Froome’s present leadership status in Team Sky. He has spoken about getting “sick & tired” over Sky leadership row with the reigning Tour France champion.

Wiggins was Froome’s predecessor in Tour France victory for the year 2012. He admitted if a disappointing 2013 season & felt that has suffered enough humiliation when Froome was selected to spearhead Sky for the hundredth edition of the most esteemed race in cycling. It was Sir Bradley’s illness & injury that compelled him to quit from Giro in May which further ruled him to refrain himself from defending his Tour France title this year.

Wiggins’ withdrawal from Tour France marked a dark patch for the leading Brit rider this year- ironically, it’s a sharp contrast to the very successful season he had last year. The 2012 Tour France champion feels that it’s the row with Chris that has further left a negative kick on his life.
