Mark Cavendish

“Having him back is big news for the older guys on [Columbia]. But, for me, I’ve never had the opportunity to race with Lance and I have no idea how different it would be to actually race with him. Obviously for some one like me, I was growing up and starting cycling just as he was starting his domination of the Tour de France. So yes, it is quite special. I don’t normally get star struck. But I know that some of the other guys are excited about this, like George Hincapie, who rode seven Tours with him.”
