The story on the front page makes it sound like its a done deal for 2022...
All but the signature on the line according to Lefevere.


“'Mark wanted an extension to his fairy tale and I didn't want to take that away from him' says Lefevere”

It was Lefevere who was getting annoyed because it was taking so long. He was going to Ghent to meet Cavendish and basically shove a contract under his nose. But then he crashed (Cavendish).
Yeah but at least according to reports it was more Lefevere was ready and willing to sign Cavendish the rider and not the after riding part. Then they finally got it ironed out and the crash. So I’m saying now, maybe he doesn’t want it to be finalized in case Cavendish’s injury is severe.

I just saw his story and was coming to share. It’s terrible experience for everyone involved and I wish the best for them. When my house was almost broken into and I was home, I was beyond nervous about any sound during the night for months and still have those sleep parlay dreams about it. It’s even worse for them and I hope the best.
 

“It was reported that police believe this was a targeted forced entry.
“This was undoubtedly a targeted incident at the home of a celebrated British Olympian, who at the time was recovering from significant injuries resulting from a crash whilst competing, which was well-publicized,” said the senior investigating officer on the case detective inspector Tony Atkin. “Mr. Cavendish and his wife were assaulted and threatened in their own home, in the presence of their young children, who witnessed these events. Thankfully, they are recovering, but the traumatic effect will be long-standing.”“

I think it pushes more how it stinks professionals and celebrities life is in the news so when stuff like this happens, they can be taken advantage of.
