C'mon Cav!

Mark Cavendish speeding along Whitehall.
Tomorrow is the last day of the road cycling world championships in Copenhagen. Team GB already have two medals won by Bradley Wiggins and Emma Pooley earlier in the week, but neither were gold. The final race is the men's road race, with the Manx Missile, Mark Cavendish, the pre-race favourite to wrest the title from Norway's God of Thunder, Thor Hushovd. We'll be cheering on Cav via the medium of BBC television at 15:10. Can he become only the second ever Briton to become world champion (Tom "Mr Tom" Simpson was the only other winner in 1965)?

Pictured is Cav following in the slipstream of one of his HTC Highroad team mates through Whitehall during the final stage of the Tour of Britain last Sunday, a race which Cav won, despite being only in fifth position as he passed us with 250m to go until the finishing line.

Come on Cav!

*Edit* Cav won! He is the new world road race champion!
