We take a close look at Mark Cavendish's Specialized S-Works Venge, made for the 2014 Tour de France

Specialized has produced a CVNDSH Venge for the Tour de France, just for sprint ace Mark Cavendish.

Cavendish’s 49cm frame is finished with white seat stays, top tube and down tube with dark metallic green chain stays, seat tube, forks and then that green is carried through to a strip on the underside of the down tube and on the top side of the top tube. There’s also a lime green carriage line on the down tube.
