Five years after his last Tour de France stage win, Mark Cavendish (Deceunick-QuickStep) sprinted to victory on Tuesday in a town that he had already seen before from atop the winner’s podium. The victory was one that seemed far, far away just eight months ago, after he left the Gent-Wevelgem media zone in tears having admitted that it may have been his last race as a professional.

Social media collectively lost its mind when Cavendish crossed the finish line first in Fougères and, about an hour later, the peloton’s tweets poured in with their own congratulations. Below is collection of those messages and we dare you not to cry while reading them. Enjoy!
