A Brit a Day [#493]

Really, those podium girls’ dresses get better every Tour. I’d love to have one of those dresses…

Oh…Here he is, the man from the Isle of Man, the Manx Missile, the Fastest Man on Two Wheels, top sprinter Mark Cavendish, receiving his 17th overall stage win in the TDF in yesterday’s Stage 7. Here’s one thing I love about this guy–he has no aspirations of winning the Tour, ever. He certainly knows his strengths. On a stage with a flat finish, Team HTC-Highroad delivers Mark to a missile launch sprint at the finish line. In a climbing stage, Mark often places in the 100’s. Of course this raises the question, is Team HTC-Highroad going to put all of their energy into Cavendish’s stage wins, or will they put forth a leader to try for the general classifications?
