Here is what the Armchair Sports Fan says about Marc Cavendish’s 2011 Tour de France accomplishments:

Mark Cavendish may have been the man to take the podium as the winner of today’s 15th stage to Montpellier but, as the Manxman is so often the first to point out, he was just the final member of a sterling nine-man team effort. HTC-Highroad put their stamp all over this transition stage from start to finish, controlling the chase, the intermediate sprint and the finish to increase their man’s stranglehold on the green jersey. In claiming his fourth win of this Tour Cavendish became the first sprinter (and only the second rider after Eddy Merckx) to win at least four stages at four consecutive Tours de France. Quite simply, this is the most dominant sprinter in the most polished team the sport of cycling has ever seen.
