Cav on the BBC

Mark Cavendish was his usual confident but charming self during yesterday’s interview with Gabby Logan on Inside Sport. Perhaps unsurprisingly he was uncertain about coach David Brailsford’s suggestion that he could be cycling’s Wayne Rooney!

Who could argue with his frustration over the British public’s obsession with the Olympic Games to the exclusion of the classic races and major Tours. Perhaps if he takes the green jersey in the Tour he will become as famous as Rebecca Romero !!

It was surprising to learn that last year he was dope tested 64 times and remarkable that he has to contribute ten percent of his winnings toward the costs of testing. He played down his former career as a ball room dancer saying that being the best in the Isle of Man didn’t count for much.
