Mark Cavendish Specialized Venge Tour de France bike makes the mountain stages

Mark Cavendish’s exit from the 2014 Tour de France will go down in Tour history.

His hunger to take the Harrogate stage – his mum’s home town – ended in disaster as he clipped a fellow rider and his bike created a cascade of pro riders in the final fight to the finish. The crash was spectacular. Cavendish was devastated. It ended not only his hopes of winning the Grand Depart but also of completing the 2014 Tour de France. The injuries he sustained in the crash put him out of the competition.

Ski Walk Cycle Pyrenees was there rooting him on and willing him to take the glory of a Grand Depart win in Harrogate. Ski Walk Cycle Pyrenees’ home town, Bagneres de Luchon, is twinned with Harrogate. A win for Cavendish would have been poetic for us.

Cavendish missed out on the stage that should have been his – and the fight for the Tour. Luck has not been on Cav’s side this year.

It’s been a pretty lucky one for Ski Walk Cycle Pyrenees though. A month after the 2014 Tour de France ended, Specialized contacted James to say he would be getting Mark Cavendish’s 2014 Tour de France bike. And a trip to Morgan Hill in California to pick it up. Unbelievable. But true.

So Cav’s bike, at least, will make it to the mountain stages of the Tour de France. Perhaps he would like to come and ride it on the cols he should have conquered this summer.

Here’s the main man himself with a short video message to James Hatchett congratulating him on the win.
