Mark Cavendish and Mario Cipollini, two of the greatest sprinters of all time. But, who is/was better? Comment with your thoughts.
‘The Lion King’, Mario Cipollini was perhaps as famous for the custom kits that he often raced in as he was for his results. That said, with a world title, 12 stages at the Tour and 42 stages at the Giro and a total of 157 pro wins, Cipo could well be the greatest road sprinter of the last 25 years.
Let’s move on to Mark Cavendish. Cav also has a world title to his name, which he won in 2011. Cav has a total of 132 pro wins so far – so he could well exceed Cipo’s total before he retires. Cavendish’s wins include 26 Tour stages and 15 stages of the Giro.
Who do you think is the better sprinter? Let us know down in the comments.
