Cavendish Out Of Tour De France : Crash Dislocates His Shoulder

Tragedy has struck our Brits hope of Tour de France glory after what he admits was a silly mistake nearing the end of stage 1 in Yorkshire. The crash resulted in him and Simon Gerrans planting into the floor during the high speed sprint in Harrogate. The accident left Gerrans with minor injuries but he should be able to continue. Cavendish very magnanimously spoke with him at the finish line as well as calling him in his hotel after the race to apologise and wish him luck for the next stage.

We are gutted for Mark, all the time, effort and devotion he has spent to preparing for The Tour is gone in a flash. This said though, we still have 3 other Brits competing in the form of reigning champ Chris Froome, Geraint Thomas and Simon Yates….Come on lads, lets bring it home!
