Mark Cavendish and the GB team congratulations on winning world championship

Many congratulations to Mark Cavendish on winning the Men's Professional Road Race yesterday afternoon. A brilliantly timed sprint from Mark, although Matthew Goss got quite close on the line, and what a great team ride from the GB team.  

Not only has Mark Cavendish established himself as the best current sprinter and one of the all time greats but is a serious candidate for being the best sprinter ever.

Film of the finish here and some articles here, here, here and here.
