Documentaries in cycling have over the last couple of years became an objective over some streaming services. With the Tour de France, Jumbo-Visma and other teams/riders/events having their own project done, it appears as if Mark Cavendish's hunt for a record-breaking victory at the Tour de France will have a production from Netflix.
“The Tour de France is what I’ve always set my career around, and from outside I’m well aware. We are at that point I can stand alone [from Merckx]. Another win at the Tour is everything to people but, for me, it’s not one win, it’s two or three, whatever I can do," Cavendish said in an interview with The Times.
In the interview it has been hinted that the production and filming has already begun. Cavendish was a late signing for the Kazakh team, but the dimension of his objective, the historic significance and roller-coaster journey it has been over the last few years has drawn in big hitters in the industry.
Cavendish is set to start his season at the upcoming Tour of Oman, but is keen on having a 35th win at the Tour to beat Eddy Merckx record on stage wins. “For me it is quite simple. I can continue riding my bike, I can continue winning, so why not do it? I love it. I love racing. It’s changed. The racing is not as enjoyable but I still love it," he concluded.
