Prior to flying off to cover the 2010 Tour de France for ITV4, Chris Boardman helped his home city of Liverpool celebrate Team Green Britain Bike Week by presenting some of his most precious cycling mementos to the new Museum of Liverpool that opens in 2011.

In a Liverpool Pier Head ceremony in front of the new building last Thursday, Boardman gave curators his iconic Lotus bike, a Tour de France yellow jersey from his first prologue victory in 1994 and a section of the Manchester Velodrome on which he beat the World Hour Record for the second time in 1996.
