“Cannonball Cav” is a very apt moniker for Marc Cavendish

It’s that 3 weeks every year, in July, when about 200 professional bike riders engage their bodies and minds on that most gruelling sports event, the Tour de France.

Here is a pic of him winning Stage 5 of the Tour de France:

Here is a quote from him after the race (via “The armchair sports )

An exhausted Cavendish spoke at length about his win at a post-stage press conference, ranking it as one of his very best:

It was on the scale of my 2009 stage win [in Aubenas] really, but it was more difficult, because it was unexpected. The stage was hard, the finish was really hard, the uphill. That finish was steep and I went into the red. I was lucky to have my guys, six guys to keep me out of the wind all day. I had Gossy and Tony Martin on that little uphill.
