    "Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team communicates that Mark Cavendish will not take the start at the British National Road Championship on Sunday.

    The current British Champion is busy with a bout of bronchitis that began during the last stages of the Tour de Suisse. As a precautional measure, Mark will not participate on Sunday and will continue training in Italy prior to the Tour de France.

    "I'm sad because, as current champion, I would really like to defend the title," Cavendish said. "I would have liked to honor the race and this jersey that I wore for all of 2014 so far, which allowed me to represent my country proudly. I think it's wiser, however, to not take any risks and focus on absolute, 100 percent recovery, and continue to train in function of the Tour de France. I talked with the race organizers and they understood my situation perfectly. I wish them well, and also wish good luck to all riders at the race on Sunday trying to fight for this jersey I've been so proud to wear."

    I think Wiggins could have an real chance at the Classics next year if he put his mind to it. He should move to a team that would support his crack at that. I hope he drops in on here to heed my advice.

    Wiggins pays Scott Mitchell to "accidentally" get his camera strap caught in Froome's wheel at the Dauphine, resulting in predictable collarbone breakage. Wiggins takes leadership, making "Cup of tea?" gesture as he wins Yorkshire stage, thus endearing himself to millions of indifferent Brits. Leads out Cav to victory on the Champs Elysees. Moves to OPQ. Gets full chest piece of St. George slaying the dragon with his face on St. George and Froome's face on the dragon. Becomes Prime Minister.

    Good to see Wout Poels winning today. He had a rough time the past couple of seasons after his massive crash at the 2012 Tour.

    Very entertaining finish. Proper tit for tat stuff.
