Well done Cav. Great start to the season. Last year must have been a disappointment. He is unquestionably a brilliant cyclist possessing tactical nous, race sense, unrivalled acceleration and a killer instinct. He has always had the ability to seek stage wins without necessarily benefiting from a lead out train. OPQS may not have the reliable ability to guide him home and and as shown in Qatar we may not necessarily have the aesthetic beauty of him launching from a well drilled lead out train. However, the prospect of much more rewarding and exciting finishes engineered by Cav will be something to savour.
