You know you’ve arrived when someone makes a T-shirt celebrating your achievements. A clothing company has just released a green T-shirt depicting a map of France showing the location of all ten of Mark Cavendish’s 2008-09 Tour de France stage wins.

The company, www.philosophyfootball.com, are more used to making shirts celebrating footballers so it’s an endorsement of cycling’s rise in prominence that they are making a shirt dedicated to Cavendish.

The company’s co-founder Hugh Tisdale is apparently a fan of the Tour and witnessed Cavendish in action at this year’s race.

The shirt also includes a quote from French sporting paper L’Equipe, and has the legend ‘Cavendish 10′ on the back.

The shirt is available in five sizes from small to XXL and is priced at £20.99 from www.philosophyfootball.com.

    Cavendish fan? Just looking to cash in maybe?

    I think its great that a t-shirt has been made to show Cav’s achievements in the Tour. He worked so hard to achieve what he did. What makes it more special is the fact that he is a British rider.
