Are Cavendish's Olympic Dreams In Jeopardy?

From today's post-stage twitterness:

@MarkCavendish

Thanks to the dickhead who crashed me at 3km to go today by waving his flag so it wrapped round my handlebars. Bike's broke. Leg's swollen.

Leg's swollen?? The Olympic road race is July 28, nine days from now. Swollen? This might be a minor injury for Cavendish, but anything that takes the edge off his fitness and depletes his body's resources has the potential to mark the difference between winning and losing in what has to be the biggest race of his life, an Olympic event on home soil while riding as the reigning world champion. Hopefully it's nothing. Stay tuned for details.
