Mark Cavendish

Another classic finish as the Tour hurtled at top speed into the centre of Narbonne today. Mark Cavendish crossed the line first, which means he’s won more stages in a single Tour than anyone else from the UK. I knew he’d do it, but I didn’t know he’d do it so soon after Saturday’s awesome display of power. The big question now: Can he make it over the Alps? A freak accident made the Pyrennees tough going, and he had to dig deep today. I’d love to see him storming round the Champs-Élysées — if he gets there, he’ll win the final stage too.
