"Everyone says he cannot win Paris-Roubaix, but I say that's rubbish. If you can win Milan-San Remo, you can win Paris-Roubaix also."

Mark Cavendish, who is currently at the Tour of Qatar, has shown great form right from the start of the year. He won the first stage and sits in second overall. Former mentor Brian Holm is convinced that the Dimension Data leader can become 'king of the Classics'.

 

"Cav is maybe in a place now where, for sure, he could race Paris-Roubaix, and maybe win, I would say", Holm told Sky Sports. "Everyone says he cannot win Paris-Roubaix, but I say that's rubbish. If you can win Milan-San Remo, you can win Paris-Roubaix also. The climbs of Milan-San Remo are not really suited to Cav, but on the flat he is unbelievable."

 

"This year has a very strict schedule with the Olympics, the worlds and the Tour de France. One more object would be too much, but I have no doubts that Cav can win Paris-Roubaix. He doesn't need to prepare; he can do it now. He can be king of the Classics", Holm added. "Tom Steels was a sprinter and he finished third at Paris-Roubaix, Eddy Planckaert was a sprinter and won it, and I think Cav is going to be there sooner or later in Paris-Roubaix."

 

"I would say he is as good as ever right now, but I just think the challenge is bigger now. There are more people around, like Kittel and [Andre] Greipel, who have organised trains around them. Cav is a sprinter and he won't lose it in the next few years."
