Bad news for Cav, Oscarito to focus on Worlds 2011

Three time World Champion Oscar Freire is to give the TDF a miss in 2011 so that he reaches the start line in Copenhagen in perfect form. Oscar believes that he can add a fourth rainbow jersey that will lift him clear of the other three time winners Binda, Van Steenbergen and Merckx.

There is more bad news for Cav as Freire plans to postpone his retirement so he can ride at the London Olympics in 2012. By 2012 Oscarito will be 36 and Cav will be stronger and hopefully just as fast so if it comes to a sprint it will be quite a battle.  Until today I thought the Olympic road race was a non event but if Oscar says it is special that is good enough for me. Bring it on.

As good a way as any to spend 1hr 15 minutes on a freezing day.

Cav dates Peta Todd

The Manx spurter is planning to take his latest flame, the glamour model Peta Todd, to the Sports Personality of the Year event on Sunday. Miss Todd who was born in Newham, east London is a big fan of West Ham united her local team.

Football is not her only sport as in 2008, she cycled 400 miles (640 km) in seven days raising over £3,000 through sponsorship and a further £4000 by auctioning her bicycle and cycling shorts on the last day of her ride for the “Help the Heroes” charity. It is rumoured that her bike realised £230 with her shorts (unwashed) making up the balance.

It must be stressed that the photo was taken years before Cav had even met the southern stunner.
