Tour Day Two

Not Mark Cavendish. This is my friend Brian playing the role of Cav.

A guy who finished nearly last in yesterday’s time trial won today’s bike race. Great Britain’s Mark Cavendish won today’s 116-mile stage from Monaco to Brignoles. Not a bad way to see the French Riviera! Cavendish is the world’s fastest sprinter– one of those guys who is always smiling, and rightly so. He won four stages in last year’s Tour and he’ll win several this year too. Prepare to hear his name more often. You can name-drop to your Tour lover something like this: “Oh, honey, I wonder if anyone will be able to beat Cav in the sprints this year.” You’ll sound like a Tour pro!
