Life has gotten a little busy this week and I haven’t been able to fully keep up with the Tour. So imagine my surprise yesterday when I was sitting in the pub and I caught some footage of this:
I almost shot beer through my nose when I saw Mark Cavendish, World Champion, the Manx Missile, Husband of Peta Todd …delivering bottles to the rest of the team! It seems that his inability to keep himself off the ground in this year’s Tour has relegated him to the role of Rainbow Jersey Domestique.
Is Cav fianlly repaying his debt to his lead out train who, year after year, delivers him like the mail to the finish line? If so, good lookin’ out. I wonder what Cipollini would have to say about this?
Cheers to you Cav! Now go get yourself a cheeseburger…
