Julien Vermote: Chasing breakaways, loyalty and his bond with Mark Cavendish

March 17, 2022

In this week’s bonus episode of The Press Room, I chat with one of the biggest workhorses in the peloton, Julien Vermote of Alpecin-Fenix. Julien spent 9 years with Mark Cavendish as his most trusted domestique. Julien shares some great stories from those years working with Cav detailing his memories from the leadouts, killing breakaways and ripping down mountain descents in the grupetto to make the time cut at the Tour de France.
