Not the Time for This ToC19-12
Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) is just not having the race of his dreams, his nighmares, maybe. Yesterday he struggled valiantly (and successfully) to beat the time limit. Today he must have been feeling much better, he was still with the peloton as they approached the Haute Catagorie climb of Mount Hamilton. Alas, he had a mechanical right at the base of the climb. That was bad enough, but then he had the slowest bike change I have ever watched during a bike race. He did managed to get back to the forming grupetto and come in far ahead of the broom wagon today. I think his body language says all you need to know about his mood at this point.
