A Cavendish Cavalcade

By Ashton | Permalink | 1 comment | April 3rd, 2008 | Trackback

Cavendish Wins Mark Cavendish, the Team High Road sprinter from Great Britain who made his name riding indoor tracks, won the second and third stages of the Three Days of De Panne and followed it with a respectable finish in the closing time trial. Cavendish had to sprint from deep in the pack to win the second stage, reminiscent of one of Robbie McEwen’s finishes after a crach or puncture in the Tour de France last year. He had to manufacture a gap near the end of the third stage, barely easing out Liquigas’ Francesco Chicchi, after near constant bumping and pusing among the sprinters in the last 600-800 meters. Rabobank’s Joost Posthuma edged out Manuel Quinziato of Liquigas by two seconds for the General Classification Championship by virtue of his dominating performance in the closing time trial. Any fan would enjoy watching the finish of Stages 2 and 3a of this exciting race.
