Best win ever by a sprinter. Mcewen has had some rippers, like 2007 London stage 1, but Cavendish sprinted like a crit, when it was about 270kms in his legs, plus a Poggio and Cipressa. And Cav has a unique ability like Mcewen, to nose his way through a finish, it is just that he never required it, in the last few seasons, because he built the reputation and train at Columbia.
Mcewen is dreaming. He should stay with the weather on the Gold Coast or wherever he lives.
i think your right. it's still good to see that if he's going down, he's going down with a fight. it would be nice to see him beat cav. i think some of the sprinters need to have more of a plan to beat cav because he will just keep dominating the others.The london stage victory is my favourite st victory at the tour forever. the way he got back to the peleton, got to the front and sprinted around everyone with such power and ease was just amazing. i watched that stage the other day and was looking for mcewen. he was a far way back and in quite a lot of traffic and got through.
