Roadrunner Cav, the fastest man on 2 wheels, achieved his 100th professional victory in stage 1 of the Giro d'Italia 2013. My video includes Robbie McEwen, himself a brilliant sprinter, sharing his thoughts on why Cav's so fast.

One of these days I've got to learn how to put the youttube clip in the post, not just the link. Does anyone know how to do that?

100 already? Does anyone have the stats of wins/year, etc. on Cav? Would be interesting vs Cipo/Zabel/ and so on.

I heard it on Eurosport at the end of Cav's win on stage 1 - I think it was Declan Quigley who said it. I hope my congratulations aren't premature.

I think there's more to it than what McEwan says there. Imo, Cavendish doesn't get enough credit for his race intelligence. I don't know if that's natural to him, or if he studies the course in more detail than others (maybe both), but he's amazingly smart about getting on the right wheel, choosing the right lane and getting into the wind at the right moment.
He's probably the fastest guy anyway, due to the reasons mentioned by McEwan, but that alone doesn't explain his incredible (maybe unprecedented) winning percentage.

Fastest man on two wheels? Notwithstanding Jorge Lorenzo, there's a few trackies who'd probably beg to differ.
I should say what I really think. He is beauty on 2 wheels - an absolute joy to watch. He's the Roadrunner.
