Cavendish: class of his own?

No, you were not positing that he was ever clean, you were mocking the argument of those who think doping can explain Cavendish's current and past performances by rhetorically asking whether people were suggesting that "he stopped doping in 2017". Hence my response that no such suggestion is necessary at all.
 
for those bringing in colbrelli..he has own thread

he is at least on the up...sprinters decline with age..cav's career was in terminal decline..not won
for years...not looking like winning..no team wished to sign him

and then BOOM he's back...'cav was always good is no argument'

in the day i cheered cavs wins...not now... it stinks

i laughed at it at the time but Cavendish got freakishly lucky. Ewan crashed, Sagan was hurt for the race, Merlier got time-cut (and got screwed by Alpecin choosing the wrong sprinter to protect after stage 3), Demare got cut and never looked good anyway, Cobrelli decided he was done with sprinting and he wanted to be a climber instead.

i mean there's always the QS juice but he's not exactly suddenly beating a world class sprinter field out of nowhere.

He did get over the mountains while guys like Demare and Bouhanni didn't, that's the thing. Last year finishing a one-day race was hard for him.
 
OK? just what did cav do to peak mid TDF .....since then he has not looked so good...
mountains would have taken off later speed.........but since he has not been flying so
fast

now at TOB even greipel outsprinted him?

will QS renew....or will cav move on...never to win again.....?

I don't think QS will renew his contract. When Cav went to TdF and won it was like being born on third base and think you hit a triple.
