Seeing Cavendish discover the news about Wiggins as he was being interviewed over his stage win, really made me see the guy in a different light, he looked genuinely gutted for him….
An interview i saw with Cavendish a few months ago left me feeling that he had no loyalty to British cycling or indeed his riding peers, indeed there was no love lost for British Olympic cycling which left me feeling a little sad. Today though, he showed a different side, and genuine compassion at Wiggins bad fortune.
They aren’t really direct competitors i suppose, Wiggins being a yellow jersey contender, whilst Cav is after Green points, but even so, it was nice to see genuine concern for a fellow Brit…… “rider down”
Get well soon Bradley.
