Cav as World-Champ should be riding Omloop AND K-B-K this weekend!!!!
 
It's not right that the world-champ i.e. Cav misses out on Omloop and he is only riding K-B-K this weekend. As the World-Champion he SHOULD most definitely have started Omloop today to give the race the respect it deserves. Even winning K-B-K tomorrow is not enough justification for not riding today.

No he shouldn't, Sky have more capable man than Cavendish on the cobbles. Now he'll be extra fresh for Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne where he can actually win. It's called being realistic.

That is exactly my point. Cav is being realistic by riding K-B-K only. If he were a true World-Champ he should have at least started Omloop and supported his team-mates, if only psychologically by being there.

A true world champion would ride 450 race days. Clearly Cav just doesn't give a **** about cycling.

Respecting races in the rainbow jersey is all well and good, but not at the expense of lessening a rider's chances to win another race that deserves respect.

No. Just no.

He should also forego sleep in favour of training 8 hours each night then racing in the day. If he's not racing he should stay on the bike 24/7 untill the next race. Anything less is just not giving the jersey the respect it deserves. Respect the jersey's authoritah!
