Mark Cavendish Is Favourite For Sports Personality Of The Year

Mark Cavendish is favourite for Sports Personality of the Year

Joe Robinson 22 Jul 2021 His incredible comeback story at the Tour de France is earning him deserved attention from beyond cycling Fresh off the back of his incredible Tour de France comeback, Mark Cavendish is now the bookies' favourite to win Sports Personality of the Year. The 36-year-old exprienced a memorable career renaissance taking four stage wins and the green points jersey at his first Tour since 2017. In the process, Cavendish managed to equal the great Eddy Merckx for the most stage victories in Tour history with 34 wins. This remarkable Tour performance also came within the wider context of Cavendish's return to the top of the sprinting game. Nine months prior, the Manxman was out of contract at Bahrain-McLaren and considering bringing his career to an end due to the lack of contract opportunities. However, a last minute deal struck with former team Deceuninck-QuickStep saw Cavendish extend ...

Gallery: Wout Van Aert King Of The Road After Stage 20 Tt Win

Martin James 18 Jul 2021 Pogacar looks human for once as Van Aert edges out Asgreen in final Tour time-trial The individual time-trial may be known as the race of truth, but in truth there was little of consequence to be decided on Stage 20 of the 2021 Tour de France . The stage win itself was up for grabs of course, but aside for some squabbling over minor GC places, this was more a case for admiring the form and fitness of these two-wheeled gladiators and marvelling at the journey this remarkable race has taken over the past three weeks. Mark Cavendish was an early starter, and largely just going through the motions ahead of his date with destiny on the Champs-Élysées today as he targets Eddy Merckx’s stage win record. Chris Froome was on the road not long after, not a contender for victory these days but a ...

Gallery: Nobody Was Beating Tadej Pogacar On Stage 17

Will Strickson 15 Jul 2021 The maillot jaune reigned supreme as Carapaz played games and Vingegaard rode for second on top of the Col du Portet Everyone loves an underdog. After cheering him up La Planche des Belles Filles last year it's been tough to support Tadej Pogačar at this year's Tour de France as he's dominated the competition and only showed apparent weakness for 30 seconds on Mont Ventoux. But Stage 17 of the Tour de France saw an impassioned champion reign supreme and it was incredible to watch. With his UAE Team Emirates domestiques putting up their best display of the Tour by a long chalk – energy levels probably helped by not controlling the peloton for two weeks – most of the bunch were dropped and the breakaway caught by the time Rafał Majka peeled off. Pogačar then upped the pace and saw off most of the ...

Gallery: Bikes Of The Tour De France 2021

Joe Robinson 6 Jul 2021 Getting up close and personal with the bikes of Tadej Pogacar, Geraint Thomas, Peter Sagan and more It was a rest day for the Tour de France peloton on Monday as they recovered from what had been a brutal first week of racing. Yet there was no rest for the wicked for top photographer Chris Auld . No, instead of putting his feet up in Tignes Chris was busy doing the rounds, checking out some of the top bikes at this year's race. For his troubles, he got up close and personal with the rigs of Geraint Thomas (Ineos Grenadiers), Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe), Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo), Matej Mohoric (Bahrain Victorious), Michael Matthews (Team BikeExchange), Stefan Kung (Groupama-FDJ), Thomas de Gendt (Lotto-Soudal), Warren Barguil (Arkea-Samsic) and current Tour yellow jersey wearer Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates).

Comment: Tadej Pogacar Has Not Won The Tour De France Yet, His Rivals Must Continue To Fight For Yellow

Joe Robinson 5 Jul 2021 If Pogacar's rivals give up the chase for yellow, this Tour will become a dead rubber If Pogacar's rivals give up the chase for yellow, this Tour will become a dead rubber Words : Joe Robinson Photos : Chris Auld There was no real need for Tadej Pogacar to attack in the final kilomteres of Sunday’s Tour de France stage . The day before the rest day, already with a 4 minute 30 second buffer on his closest rival for the yellow jersey, it would have made sense for the UAE Team Emirates rider to have played defensively. Yes, cover the moves from Ineos Grenadiers and Richard Carapaz, but don’t go wasting energy in search of more time. Keep those proverbial matches unburnt, enough damage had been done that week. Don’t go getting greedy, Tadej. Yet such is the superiority of the 22-year-old Slovenian at ...

Gallery: Teuns Wins Stage 8 In The Alps As Pogacar Lays Down The Law

Martin James 4 Jul 2021 GC rivals left floundering in the rain as defending champ takes yellow with a dominant climbing display Thanks, Tadej. No sooner do we question whether this has been the greatest Tour de France opening week ever, than the irrepressible Pogacar threatens to close out the entire race two weeks early. Such was the Slovenian’s dominance on a wet and blustery first day in the mountains. He didn’t win Stage 8 – that honour fell to Dylan Teuns in a second straight success for Bahrain Victorious – but he put so much time into his supposed GC rivals that it’s hard to see anyone else standing on the top stop of the podium in Paris, despite a full fortnight of racing still to come. The damage was done near the top of the 1 st category Col de Romme 30km from the finish, then reinforced and ...
