was always going to be a tough one, especially with the strong winds that were blowing across the roads. It was thought that this could be won by the sprinters but it was also a great chance for a good break away.
On the day, the breaks that were made were all in vein, HTC-Highroad dominated the front powering on despite the winds and obvious tired legs from the days in the Pyrenees. The last 20km from the end were as tense as ever with the teams fighting for position but ultimately it wa
s Marks team and his own ability to sprint well that led to his win. I love watching Cavendish sprint. Its like nothing else, he has such an explosive sprint even from 200metres out he accelerates with such speed. This is now his 19th sprint win as a professional, proving that he is currently the best out there right now......and best of all he is British! It is so good to see that we finally, after years of watching the tour, have are own national riders out there that we can cheers for, who are capable of winning.
