Mark Cavendish won stage 10, his third stage on the 2021 Tour de France on Tuesday to move within one of Eddy Merckx’s all-time record of 34 victories but said he is motivated more by inspiring people to overcome difficulties.
“I’ve been blown away by the love and support from around the world,” a beaming Cavendish said.
“People can be inspired by some kind of comeback if you think things are over, if anyone can use that to get inspired that is the greatest joy for me,” he added.
