Mark Cavendish Discussion Thread

Seems like the guy cant ride a race without someone finding a problem with him. Maybe we could just post it in here rather than clogging up endless race threads with 'Cav sucks' comments?

We need a sub-forum in the road racing forum specifically for appreciation and depreciation threads.

Nah, subforums are just ways of making things die. This forum is not busy enough to need to stamp out further discussion in the main section.

This Cav thing is going off the rails. Never noticed it being this big last year. Now I don't like the guy. But I also don't like having pages and pages on race discussion being turned into Cav, specially when what he said on twitter or did (n't) on the bike isn't relevant to the race.

So hopefully this provides a place for some people to vent their frustations...

Things I've learnt about Cav on this forum...

He doesn't win enough races for a man of his talent.

He's boring because he wins too many races.

He's too fat.

He's too thin.

He's a one trick pony who should develop his abilities to allow him to be successful in other races.

He shouldn't be riding races like RvV and P-R, it's just disrespecting these races.

He should shut his gob more after races.

He didn't really ought to be ignoring the media after races.

But he's got a hot girlfriend.
Edit to add the depreciation: Too hot for a man of his looks.

Great thread Richeypen.
It could run longer than the Armstrong Fed Ex thread in the clinic.

El Pistachio now has a new home, while he waits for Gilbert to stay on his bike and actually do something that Cav has done a few times already this season: win a race.

I stand about where canyonball does on the subject. Off the rails, sums up the subjectivity surrounding the guy.

So you're complaining someone is depreciating Cav in a depreciation thread? You're not very clever, huh?

Cav wins races and gets dropped on le Manie. :o Says a lot about those wins don't you think? Don't worry, I'll still be posting it in the race threads instead of here. :)

Topic starter reminds me of Chris Crocker by the way. Really, grow up. People post hateful stuff on race threads all the time. You think this only happens to Cavendish? The person I'm quoting here trolls BMC in every single race thread. Big deal, just ignore it instead of trying to play the victim. Or is it ok to troll other cyclists as long as it's not Frodo?

Wow you just managed to insult every single sprinter... How is Greipel then any better than Cav, even if he has a tad more ability in classics etc he also gets all his wins by sprinting...

Greipel crashed at the Cipressa, what are you talking about? He didn't suck nearly as hard as Cavendish. Cavendish was sitting in the Gruppeto when Greipel won his second stage in the Tour of Oman.

Greipel is a classy guy, last year he worked his balls off many times during races for his leader. I respect him for that. He also won a few stages from a breakaway which shows that he's not just a sprinter. He can be a very entertaining rider.
