Cavendish out and heading to Beijing

Just as predicted - sprinting sensation Mark Cavendish will not be climbing the Alps in the 2008 Tour de France. He does not plan to start tomorrow's stage.

He made the appropriate noises to the media and was tactful enough not to mention his shot at a track cycling medal at the Olympics: "“It was really hard. We knew all along it was going to be hard. I tried to hang on, hang on,” Cavendish told Frankie Andreu at the finish line. “I’m just getting tired.”"

Thanks for the great show this year and good luck in your preparations for the Olympics, Mark! We'll be watching and cheering for you!
