Monday Awesome: in awe of the Cav.

 

Bradley Wiggins won the Tour de France overnight, after dominating the race for weeks 2 and 3. While that is an awesome feat (especially as he’s the first Brit to do so), I would like to draw your attention to Mark Cavendish instead. Have a look at the video below, and admire the acceleration of the Cav in his final sprint to the finish line. (go to the link – I’m not having luck with the embed). At 5:50 Wiggins is at the head of the lead out train. At 6:30, Boasson Hagen leads Cavendish out and then he blasts out of the corner. Brilliant.
