July 16 / Stage 14 / Cavendish wins #30

Two Tours ago Mark Cavendish crashed on the opening stage and was out of the tour. Last year he won only 1 stage and it seemed like there was going to be a new king in town and there was simply no way to imagine his challenging the 34 stage win record of Eddie Merckx. But he has been training for the Olympics, which requires more strength, and that strategy seems to be paying off with his 4th stage win of this year’s Tour.

So, Cavendish got his 30th stage win.

We will jump back to our Tour de Lead Graffiti poster when he got his 19th back on stage 15 in 2011 and 35 seemed a long way off. We are definitely back on track with that the possibility.

Collaborators were Beth Horwitz and Mike Roth.

Another thing we saw in the stage during the program was an unusually large number of riders stopping for “natural breaks.” That is they needed to stop and take a leak along the side of the road.

This was the topic of our poster for Stage 4 of 2012, which I’ve always thought was an interesting visual solution for a poster about urinating. We really invite you to click the image and read the original story.
