Mark Cavendish, he perhaps goes without introduction. But its worth introducing him.
He is probably the best sprinter of all time. He is definitely one of the best known cyclists of his generation. Track and road world champion, gold medal Olympian. Green Jersey winner. Monument crusher. All round dude. But as it stands Mark is without contract for 2021.
I'm probably not alone in seeing Cav weep lightly to camera recently:
"This could have been the last race of my career". Not Likely Marky Baby - not if your millions of friends in the cycling community have anything to do with it.
So here we are, bung a quid into the pot - the plan is that whatever we get up to is available to whichever worldtour team is brave enough to sign him and put him in the TdF. Lets call 2021 Mark's Last Lap and give him the sendoff he deserves.
Chapeau my good friend.
