It occurred to me that every man and his dog (no offence Cadel) tries to get on Cavendish's rear wheel in the 'final'. Why don't HTC put a man behind Cav to keep them off? Aside from the obvious (one less man to pull on the front), I can't see a downside. He would obviously have to hold the wheel well and have pointy elbows. Big Bert Grabsch in his early season shape (think Ulrich off season) would be ideal!
