Mark Cavendish becomes the 2011-2012 World Road Champion!

Mark Cavendish took the field sprint to become the new world road champion earlier today. The men's elite road race came down to a field sprint, and with all of the top riders barreling down to the finish line, Cavendish proved that he is the worlds fastest man. Cav's victory for Brittian marks the first British winner of the men's world road title since Tom Simpson in 1965. Check out the coverage on Cyclingnews, and there's a ton of great pictures from the race. Congrats to the Manx missile. Photo credit © Bettini
