Cavendish is regarded as one of the most knowledgeable riders and the feats he have achieved proves that. In a press conference he was asked about his achievements and the secret behind all these feats. His answer was pretty simple. He said proper practice on a daily basis, hard work and focus are the three most important things that can lead a rider to a victory and they have to link these three things perfectly. Apart from this he also talked about the mental strength because in this sport you have to travel miles at a stretch and mental strength is extremely important in this case.
