Cavendish Takes the Classic

Mark CavendishThe London-Surrey Cycle Classic, the road test event for London 2012, has been won by Brit Mark Cavendish. The 140km course, which passes through six London boroughs and four royal parks, started on The Mall before heading through Westminster, over the Thames, on through Surrey and back to The Mall was lined with thousands of spectators in what felt like a true dress rehearsal for next year’s Olympics. It was conquered by Cav in a spectacular 3h 18’11”. The Manx Missile enthused that the crowds were “incredible the whole way” and that, “…you can’t get a sense of how the 2012 race will go, but you can get a feel for this course and the route is good” – whilst Debbie Jevans, Director of Sport for The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) was succinct with her assessment saying that she was, “very, very pleased.”
