Tour de France 2021 Stage 13 Highlights | Can Mark Cavendish Equal Eddy Merckx's Stage Wins Record?

  • Am Vor year

    GCN RacingGCN Racing

    Stage 13 presents another opportunity for the sprinters to flex their muscles before the race enters the Pyrenees. Mark Cavendish sits just one stage win behind Eddy Merck's stage win record of 34 - could today be the day for the Manx Missile?
    Another day for the sprinters awaits on stage 13, a 220km-long transitional stage from Nîmes to Carcassonne. While a little tougher than the previous day, this stage shouldn’t cause the GC men too much concern and most should be able to sit at the back of the bunch, recovering from their exploits on Mont Ventoux. The sprinters, on the other hand, will need to have their heads screwed on as they barrel towards Carcassonne. This is a long day in the saddle and many riders will smell a chance for a successful breakaway; if the sprinters and their teams give an escape group too much rope then it could go all the way.

Props to quickstep management for giving cav a chance when everyone else had given up on him

Morkov is so good leading out he even had to slow down at the end.

I'm dreaming that at the finale Cav wins #35 in Paris and Tadej requests Cav to join him at the top step of the podium. If Eddie is in attendance that would be a dream come true

I pray he gets through the mountains. It would be a film in the making. Comeback kid, A win in Paris, the tour record and the green Jersey. Well a girl can dream

You got to give it to DCQS . The lead-out train is insane , even without Tim, they managed to hold it down at the end.

Even when Cav retires, DQS will still jave Mørkøv as one of the best sprinters in the world.

Pity those of us watching on Eurosport didn't see the immediate reaction of Cav's win, instead watching all the lads saunter across the line like they just finished a Sunday coffee spin.

Cavendish, too legit to quit, his leadouts too.

50 stages wins would not have been out of the question but for his troubles over the last few years
