Cavendish’s romance

Every times Mark Cavendish wins, he talks about the romance of the sport. He won stage 4 in Fougères like in 2015. He won stage 6 in Châteauroux like in 2008 – where the list of 33 stage wins begun. He won stage 10 in Valence but that town was new on his shopping list. Nîmes is where he claimed his fourth stage of the Tour de France, also in 2008, two days before pulling out as he was still too young to overcome two mountainous massifs. Aged 36, he has made it through the Alps and the double ascent of the Mont Ventoux so he’s in the situation to win in Nîmes again. It’s the same finish where Caleb Ewan won a bunch sprint two years ago. Stage 12 is another scenic one with the magical Gorges de l’Ardèche to be visited entirely by the Tour for the first time, but it’s very likely gonna be another bunch gallop, so it sounds all good for Cav again.
