Cavendish or how to master sprints 13 years later

Nobody expected what the British man is achieving at 36 years old. I certainly never would have believed it. And all, after years without achieving any success.

Mark Cavendish won his first stage in the Tour de France in 2008. Thirteen years later, he is capable of achieving another three triumphs in the most important event in the world. And all after being several years without achieving a victory, and I am not talking about fighting in the great massive arrivals of the three-week races. No one would have expected what the British man is achieving at 36 years old. I certainly never would have believed it. It does not matter if rivals like Ewan, Merlier, Démare ... are not there. Everyone is very surprised and I think the first, him. He is one victory away from Eddy Merckx. One!

What is clear is that he will not equal this Wednesday, the great stage of the two climbs to Mont Ventoux. The leading role will be for those of the general, although I am very afraid that the fight will be for second place. Tadej Pogacar is intractable and nothing makes me think that he can live a bad day except fall or illness. So far, the difference between the Slovenian and the rest is too great and he has an advantage, and with a team, to run calmly even if someone wants to surprise him, let's say, on the descents. That is why I think the show will be to see how O'Connor tries to defend that second place and what the Urán, Vingegaard, Carapaz or Enric Mas can contribute. That I think will be the great incentive.
