Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : July 1st 2016 Contents (Hors Categorie, beyond category) climbs in the whole
Tour de France. Last year, there was 18 in the last week.
This year, there s 28 Cat 2, Cat 1 and HC climbs,"
Cavendish said. "It s quite an increase."
He won four stages in 2008, six in 2009, five each
in 2010 and 2011, and three in 2012. But over the last
three races, he has won a total of three stages, and just
one last year.
While the first three stages this year - highlighted
by Saturday s scenic opening leg from Mont-Saint-
Michel to Utah Beach - set up well for sprinters, the
route gets hilly from the fourth day onward.
"It makes more people win, which is good for the
sport but it definitely changes our approach," Cavendish
said. "You don t go with a nine-man leadout team to
the Tour de France anymore unless you re happy with
just a couple of stage wins.
"There s a longer list of GC (general classification)
contenders than there ever was. And the teams are
built behind them. That makes it very difficult for the
The 31-year-old British rider, nicknamed the "Manx
Missile," joined South African team Dimension Data
for this season after shoulder surgery in September.
He withdrew during last year s race with ruptured lig-
aments in his right shoulder.
Cavendish prepared for the Tour by opening his sea-
son in February, and has raced constantly to mixed
results --- winning one stage each in the Tour of Qatar,
Tour of Croatia, and Tour of California. He finished
second to Adam Blythe in the British championships
"It s been completely different. I used a lot of racing
to build up my endurance," Cavendish said. "I really
don t know how it s going to be. It could be the best
thing in the world. It could be the worst thing I ve ever
With 26 career stage wins in the Tour, Cavendish
sits third on the all-time list behind Eddy Merckx (34)
and Bernard Hinault (28).
"The biggest stage in the world," Cavendish said,
"is the Champs-Elysees for a sprinter."

SAINT-LO---Not too long ago, a successful Tour de
France for Mark Cavendish meant coming away with
a handful of victories.
Not anymore. And not only because German rivals
Marcel Kittel and Andre Greipel have taken over as
cycling s top sprinters.
"The sprint opportunities are less," Cavendish said
yesterday, lamenting how Tour organizers have created
more challenging routes in recent years with more hilly
stages in the opening week, as opposed to the purely
flat opening stages that the race once started with.
"In 2008, it was 18 Cat (category) 2, Cat 1 and HC
