Boy Racer: Mark Cavendish, in his own four-letter words

I have been inactive on the blog recently as I have been active in the Pyrenees and Languedoc-Roussillon as the Lost Boys Tour of Europe, Part V, has just ended this past weekend.  As it will take a few days to write up the trip, and sort through the 400-odd photos, you will just have to be satisfied with my latest book review, which ran on Pezcyclingnews.com here as I left for Toulouse.  It can be found here.  Enjoy!  More to come on Eurocycling adventures shortly...
