Chief Minister adds to Cavendish plaudits

The Chief Minister Tony Brown has hailed the outstanding achievements of Mark Cavendish in this year’s Tour de France.

The Manxman underlined his status as the fastest cyclist in the world as he sprinted to another memorable victory along the Champs-Elysees in Sunday’s final stage.

After securing his fifth win of the 2010 event and his 15th Tour success overall, the Chief Minister described his performances as nothing short of phenomenal.

A number of friends and fans were willing him on, including some who flew out to Paris, and Mr Brown says his achievements have made headlines all around the world and have placed the Isle of Man firmly in the international media spotlight.He says it shows the ‘heights that can be scaled with talent, determination and team support’ and believes ‘he will be an inspiration for future generation of Island sportsmen and women’.
