There isn't much for cavendish in this race. Will he abandon after stage 7 or the first rest day or stage 16?

Stage 16 gives him 19 days till the world champs.

He'll be there till the end, he's trying to defend his green jersey from last year

Distinct possibility, but he said he was too tired at the worlds last year.

anyone else not that impressed with Cav as a cyclist? his complete lack of ability in the mountains makes me feel that he can never be considered a great cyclist. If he hadn't come in with a bunch of others on the Tour de France, he would have been kicked out of the Tour, thus not being able to win the green jersey.

I agree, he is a great sprinter but is that really that impressive?

But he IS a sprinter, why should he be judged on his climbing ability? Cancellara also missed the time-cut twice in the Tour, are you not impressed by him either?

Wig Billy - a fair point. You're right. I guess I'm just being subjective!
