    Cavendish does it again, what an incredible comeback from a guy who wasn't even supposed to be at Le Tour this year and almost quit the sport last year.
    I wonder who will play him in the film?

    Think he will do it if he can stay within the cut off time limits. Tomorrow’s stage looks like a nightmare for the sprinters🤣
    I think the stars have aligned for Cav
    The sprinters who were seriously injured last year in the Tour of Poland would have been favourites to beat Cav, but you can only beat who is in front of you.
    History beckons !

    This could be the record equaller! 25km to go into Carcassonne, heading for a sprint.

    Cavendish has now tied the Stage Wins record of Eddy Merckx.

    What an achievement!

    When Cav picked up stages in Turkey earlier in the year I was optimistic that he might get another crack at the tour, but I never dreamed he’d equal Merckx’s record. It’s an incredible achievement, and so well deserved after what he’s gone through to come back from illness. Dare we dream of a record breaking win on the Champs Elysees?

    Today's stage going to be won by the breakaway, so it will come down to Sunday. A chance for the record on the Champs Elysées. Epic!

    That would be a fairy-tale ending. I'm on Matthews for the green jersey but EW and I won't be upset if Cav wins the final stage even if it does mean I only get my place money on Matthews. Renshaw leading out Cav off the final turn on the Champs Elysees with Cavendish exploding into his sprint like a super-charged booster rocket is one of my abiding Tour images. If he pulls it off again and takes the record I wonder if he might retire and go out at the top.

    Really looking forward to this tomorrow. Love the tour and the final day has become a bit of thing in chez Lancs Harp, with a bottle of Champagne in the fridge. Be magic if Cav breaks Merckx's, who is a true tour legend. Go Cav.
