Default 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.

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!

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.
