An Evening with Phaedra Bird and Mark Cavendish!
Pinnacle Book-Keeping and Accounts director, Phaedra Bird was invited to an exclusive dinner and evening with Mark Cavendish as part of the 2017 HSBC UK National Road Championships.
Phae was delighted with the opportunity to meet one of the world’s best cyclists and to hear direct from the Manxman himself about his career and views in the run up to to the exciting race day, taking place on Sunday 25th June.
Mark Cavendish is considered by many to be the greatest sprinter in the history of road racing. Mark enjoyed a stunning Tour de France in 2016, winning four stages to take his total of career victories in the famous race to 30.
Those victories left him in second place, behind Eddy Merckx’s 35, in the list of all-time Tour de France stage winners. Impressive as that total is, however, it represents only part of Cavendish’s career successes, with the Manxman also having claimed world championships on road and track, wins in the points classification at all three Grand Tours and the Milan-San Remo classic and an Olympic track medal, among many other victories.
