Congratulations Cavendish

First ever Brit to win the green jersey. In just four years, he’s won 20 stages – that puts him 6th highest in Tour history. My money is on him breaking Eddy Merckx’s record of 34.

    He may beat Merckx record but that would be like Katy Perry having more number #1 singles than Bruce Springsteen. The number might be higher but the quality is nowhere near.

    I do not agree. Different days, you can’t compare the two.

    No one would ever say that Cav is a better rider than Merckx, that is not the point. Cav would beat him hands down in a sprint but then again Merckx would be leading a breakaway!

    Cav, what can you say, you either love him or loath him!
