Cavendish climbs off his bike and the first thing he does is thank his team, usually with genuine hugs. When he's interviewed, the first thing he does is thank his team, not with some polite formula but with genuine warmth, naming each rider and commenting on what the bloke did. There's no bulldust in this bloke. Rather than being arrogant, he's surprisingly humble ... once you look past the cockiness of youth. In most interviews, he looks more surprised at what's happening around him than anything else.
