Cavendish, having savored every kilometre of the race, thought it was the apt time to share his decision. What a journey it’s been! He’s crushed the Tour de France, notching up a record-tying 34 stage wins, became a World Champion on the road in 2011 🏅, and bagged a few shiny medals 🥈 in the Olympic Omnium and World Championship Madison. But wait, there’s more! With 161 victories in his kit bag, including 16 stages at the Giro d’Italia, Cavendish has sprinted his way into the history books! 📚🚵♂️
