 It would be great but it feels a long shot to expect Cav to do that. I remember being near the finish line in 2014 in Harrogate when Cav should have won the opening stage and crashed in front of Bettys Tea Rooms, his family , and William and Kate watching from a royal box. 

it was boiling hot, around 1m on the route, most of them at the finish line , haha , and not one of the buggers would buy the sandwiches we had made to sell to raise money for the scouts to go to a jamboree in Japan, haha. 

but amazing and Id so love to see it again in person and see Cav end his career in style! 

with riders like Philipsen, van aert , mads pedersen all in form though, many others , and who can all sprint

Agree that it is going to be very tough for him. Would just like him to take that record before he retires later this year.

Fabulous stage and Adam Yates wins for Britain. With his brother Simon second ! Amazing and well done to him, yellow jersey is a memorable achievement!

 Gutted for Cav today.  He had the stage win in the bag until a technical issue in the last 100 metres.

And Cav is out after a crash today and that is his tour career over.

Such a shame to end this way , great rider
