Le Grand Départ
Finally the Tour de France Grand Départ has been truly grand.
Cavendish's first stage win has been fantastic. He used all his track skills and his experience and was able to set himself back on the throne of the sprinters.
For most of the people he was presented as an ex sprinter, overcome by the new generation of sprinters, young and powerful.
During the last two years he kept on working without saying a single word of envy or hate and came back today with this incredible result!
The rest of the Tour will be a nice trip around France for Cav, now he has re-gained the respect of the cycling world (never lost at my eyes) and he can just concentrate on enjoying his yellow jersey with the licence to win some more stages.
Congratulations Mark, enjoy your yellow jersey! That was a proper Grand Depart!
