Mark Cavendish is cycling's David Beckham - David Millar

British cyclist David Millar says the UK needs to start appreciating the talents of Mark Cavendish after the Manxman became Britain's first winner of the green jersey for the Tour de France's best sprinter.

Millar says Manxman Cavendish is the best sprinter in the history of cycling and says he is as big as David Beckham in other more cycling-focused European countries.
