Giro Stage One; Mark Cavendish Interview

New, 43 comments

Ciao from the Giro!

I'll post a full report later tonight or tomorrow, but I couldn't wait to share this.  My first video interview!  When I went into the press tent to watch the last few teams finish on the tv, Mark Cavendish was there, watching the race with Erik Zabel.  After a while I worked up the courage to ask if he had time for a few questions, and as soon as he said yes, I realized I hadn't thought of any questions!  Anyway, he was very nice, despite my obvious lack of interview skills.  The last few seconds of the video shows the reaction of Cavendish and Zabel as Astana crossed the line, and they realized Columbia had won the stage.
