Mark Cavendish Claims World Road Race Title in Copenhagen!!
Are you ready for the 2012 hype to begin!!
Oakley’s Star Cyclist claimed a bold victory at the World Road Race Championships in Denmark by dominating a sprint at the tail end of the race, sealing the first Rainbow Jersey for Great Britain since 1965!! Makes you proud to be British!!
The race was very close. Really close, we have the highlights below:
The first charge for Mark came early in the race – with an eight-man breakaway taking shape and going on to build a lead of almost 10 minutes on the main group.
With only six laps left to go, hopes for many of the contenders were crushed when a crash forced the bunch to split.
The final stretch was more than intense. Challenged by fellow HTC-Highroad teammate Goss in the final meters – Mark maintained his composure and powered his way to a grand victory, displaying once again why he’s considered one of the absolute best sprinters in the world. (Trust the British to leave it to the last moment)
Mark’s words after the races were:
“I’m really proud,” while rocking his Oakley Radar Sunglasses. “This has been a three-year project for us. Ever since the course was announced we have been preparing for this.”
He also spoke highly of his teammates:
“Not just I but all the guys who rode so well today and others committed to making sure we qualify a good team. A World title is something special and I’m going to wear the rainbow jersey with pride over the next year.”
Big congratulations from the team at Outlet-Sunglasses!!
