We love anything Wingman related, spotted this article on Cavendish by ESPN.
“Mark Cavendish was forced to play second fiddle to wingman Mark Renshaw after being beaten by his team-mate on Stage Five of the Tour of Britain.
Renshaw, best known as Cavendish’s lead-out man, outpaced his team-mate to win the sprint at the end of the 111.8mile route from Exeter to Exmouth.
Cavendish, who won the sprinter’s green jersey on this year’s Tour de France, was forced to settle for second ahead of Robert Forster, while Geraint Thomas was fourth as Team Sky maintained their place at the top of the team standings.
Lars Boom retained the overall race lead after finishing in the same time as Renshaw. Cavendish is 34 seconds off the pace with three stages remaining – the sixth stage takes place on Friday between Taunton and Wells”

Check out this lush Benrus watch!
‘Somehow the move to digital watches and colourful plastic timepieces took the seriousness out of watches. Is this good or bad? You decide for yourself but we are currently rocking out with this 1940 Benrus Sky Chief. Real numbers, real hands, serious black or silver face, a real crown to wind it. Known at its peak as the “Official Watch of Famous Airlines,” it was the official time piece of airline pilots at Delta, KLM, NWA and TWA. You can still find some of the authentic Sky Chiefs, and by forking out a grand or so, you may even be able to own one.’#NeverFlySolo
