Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne 2012

Mark Cavendish. Like a boss.

Mark Cavendish claimed a straightforward repeat victory in the Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne, delivered to the line perfectly by his Sky Procycling teammates.

In a straight gallop for the line, it seems no one can come close.

They call him the Manx Missile. And for good reason.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. …dude is still ‘sky high’ about winning the rainbow stripes & thumbs his nose at the uci about ‘having’ to wear white shorts to match his jersey…

    …what’s not to like…

  2. Aren’t black shorts pretty much “de riguer” in all the whole cycling world? Not that I’d know anything about that. I pretty much wear whatever I happen to have on when I’m riding my bike. But you who treat cycling as something other than a way to get from point “A” to point “B”-You do have rules about these things, don’t you?

  3. @joe

    If you say “from point A to point B” one more time I’m calling Homeland Security(otherwise know as Gestapo Security) and having your sorry ass sent to Gitmo.

    Just saying…

    Kudos to Cavendish.

    Fantastic finish.

  4. Geez, he’s getting harder to not like.

    He is as fast as **** in the last 200 meters, that’s for sure.

    That being said, saturday’s race was better ;)

  5. …cippolini, bettini, ballan, evans, even macho mr hushovd have all worn the white shorts with wc stripes to match the jersey as mandated by the uci, whose rules are exactingly specific about this shit…

    …dunno when that rule came about but i’ll bet young mr cavendish had to appeal or else the team is paying a fine in order for him to wear black shorts these days…

    …cav got popped at the end of last season whilst wearing a htc highroad jersey wherein the wc sripes were on the front & back without wrapping around the sides due to the ‘breathable’ panels in a different material…

    …& these days, few kits have that much black in ‘em although cav’s team sky does…shorts usually match jerseys & & it’s all mostly pretty colorful, ya ???…

  6. I wonder if Wiggins and Froome get a little more uneasy with every show of dominance by mr cavendish. It certainly makes the decision to chase a GC placing versus stage victories in the TDF a little more lop-sided.

  7. I’m gonna have to go ahead and agree with Mr. Jefe a little bit here. Indeed, I might go further and suggest that white chamois are just a teensy bit , you know, gay. NTTAWWT, etc.
