I think in terms of Milan-SanRemo Mark Cavendish has been sussed out. Its easy when you think about it. He can’t keep up with the pace when the road goes uphill so all the other teams just need to put the hammer down long enough to make the gap to far to bridge. The likes of Gilbert, Boonen and Cancellara can then get themselves close to the finish without worrying about the fastest sprinter. This is what happened on Saturday and i will lay a bet that whilst Cavendish is the fastest finisher in the world he will not win this race again.
This maybe should have been anticpated by the brains at Sky when formualting their plan of attack. Edvald Boasson Hagen is probably a safer bet to come up with the spoils so why did he only have Thomas Lofkvist looking after him? A lot of strong guys were wasted in the service of Cav when they could have been doing turns for Eddy.
If this is Skys idea of a Plan B then i think it may be time for a rethink.
