I’ve read on twitter that Cav was wearing a skin suit and an aero helmet. Whatever it takes within the rules, right? See http://twitter.com/#!/PaveBlog/status/117960288548036609.
Great Britain delivered Mark Cavendish to the rainbow jersey in the elite men’s world championship road race on Sunday.
The team, led by Bradley Wiggins, buried itself for the Manxman, reeling in a daylong break. And then it was up to Cav’, who used teammate Ian Stannard and a four-man Aussie train to slingshot himself to the victory. He becomes the first British world road champion since Tom Simpson in 1965.
I’ve had a lot of fun at Doughboy’s expense here on DC, who ate all the pies and whatnot. Congratulations on hitting the Rainbow, kid. Wear those stripes with pride.
