Cavendish top-ten on return at Tour of Slovenia
June 16, 2017 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Sidelined by Epstein-Barr Virus since April, Mark Cavendish rode to tenth place on his return to racing at the Tour of Slovenia. The Dimension Data rider hadn't raced since Milano-San Remo and despite freewheeling over the line in Kocevje Cavendish notched his best result since February. "Hard to start racing again in mid-June. @tourofsloveniaofficial is the best race for it, for sure. Today was about my physical feelings more than a result. My team @teamdidata did an amazing job that would have normally produced a win, but I couldn't finish off their work," Cavendish wrote on Instagram. Along with fellow WorldTour teams Bahrain-Merida and Bora-Hansgrohe, Dimension Data were set on ensuring a sprint finish to the stage. With 10km to race, the day's breakaway was caught with Dimension Data setting a pace that suggested Cavendish was ready to test his legs in the sprint. A crash over a bridge with one kilometre to race disrupted the sprint and resulted in a shoulder injury for Jacques Janse van Rensburg. The South African was taken to hospital for examinations.ADVERTISEMENT Irishman Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe) held off Bahrain-Merida's Sonny Colbrelli for the win and will wear the leader's green jersey on stage 2. Describing the run into the line, teammate Bernhard Eisel explained that team's leadout train was in trouble inside the final 10km when he lost Cavendish and Mark Renshaw. "This was definitely a tough day for all of us, especially for Cavendish and Renshaw after coming back from injuries. I think we did a good team effort. Unfortunately, we lost each other a little bit with 5 km to go," Eisel said. "I blame myself as I went too early, which caused Cavendish and Renshaw to make a big effort in order to get back up to us. They came around the last corner in 10th-12th position and that was just too far down to win. However, there is still another chance for a sprint stage and it was really good to see Cavendish motivated and ready to sprint. Lets see what the next days will bring."

Dimension Data confirm Tour of Britain team in support of Cavendish
September 03, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Dimension Data have confirmed its six-man team for the 2016 Tour of Britain with Mark Cavendish spearheading its squad, although there is no place for defending champion Edvald Boasson Hagen.Tour de France stage winner Steve Cummingsis also selected for the race and will be free to pursue his personal ambitions. The 2.HC stage race will be Cavendish's first road race since the Tour de France and marks his return to the road after winning silver in the omnium. Cavendish will have Mark Renshaw and Bernie Eisel as his dedicated lead out men in his bid for an 11th career stage win at the race. "Let's see if we can win 1 or 2 stages with Mark Cavendish and play a role in GC. We definitely going to try and show the jersey by winning stages, going in breakaway and by having fun out there," Eisel said of the team ambition.ADVERTISEMENT Eisel will also perform the role of road captain which becomes even more important for the nine-stage race with just six riders per team. "I am really looking forward to racing Tour of Britain again," he said. "After looking through the stages, this year's race will probably be the toughest one yet. The last stages have 3000 to 4000m of climbing, and that's in Britain so you know it's just going to be up and down all day. 6 man teams, it will be very tough to control the race and I think we will see the overall lead changing hands many times." The race starts in Glasgow on September 4, finishing in London on September after a split stage in Bristol that includes a morning time trial. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Cavendish ups Olympic selection bid with Omnium win in Lithuania
June 06, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Mark Cavendish upped his game for selection to the British team for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, winning the omnium in this weekend's meeting in Paneveys, Lithuania. Cavendish began the weekend with a second place in the Scratch race to Switzerland's Gal Suter, then followed up with an uncharacteristic victory in the Individual Pursuit. He ended the first day with the win in the Elimination Race. On the second day, his compatriot Kian Emadi won the kilometer time trial and flying lap, while Cavendish finished third in both. Cavendish went into the final points race with a ten point advantage on Suter, and 20 on Suter's teammate Olivier Beer.ADVERTISEMENT Not content to rest on his laurels, Cavendish won six of the 15 mid-race sprints, lapped the field with Suter and then won the final sprint to take a commanding victory by 26 points over Suter. With the road course in Rio unsuited to him, Cavendish has turned his focus to the track. Cavendish last raced the track in the Olympics in 2008, when he and Madison partner Bradley Wiggins were the favourites for victory after claiming the world title that year, but were only able to manage ninth in Beijing. Subsequently, the UCI removed the Madison from the Olympic programme, leaving the Omnium as the most logical event for him to qualify. Cavendish and Wiggins won the Madison at the World Championships earlier this year. " Mark Cavendish (@MarkCavendish) June 6, 2016 You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Wiggins and Cavendish to team up at Six Day London
May 24, 2016 (09:15) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
After claiming a memorable Madison title at the Track World Championships earlier this year, Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish will team up once again, returning to the scene of their triumph, at the Six Day London event in October. Cavendish confirmed his participation a couple of months ago but Wiggins was added to the bill on Tuesday to form, as he put it, the double act everyone wants to see. Ever since their ill-fated Madison ride at the 2008 Olympic Games, the careers of two of the biggest personalities in the history of British cycling have entwined themselves, culminating in that feel-good victory in the London Velodrome.Wiggins, who had noted that he and Cavendish had 'conquered the world' in the intervening eight years, said this year's Six Day could be the last time they compete alongside one another.ADVERTISEMENT Its going to be great. This has got to be the double act everyone wants to see isnt it?" said the 36-year-old. "Winning the Madison at the Worlds was incredible and this might well be the last chance that people get to see us together. With the roof having been blown off the Lee Valley VeloPark during the Madison victory in March, Wiggins joked that theyd have to put in some six day appearances " like the old days of Merckx and Sercu. Cavendish, who helped launch the Six Day London last year, revealed that was exactly the idea he had put to his partner. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...
Cavendish in driving seat for Olympic Games selection
April 19, 2016 (20:00) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Mark Cavendishis in the driving seat to take the Omnium spot in the Great Britain track squad for the Olympic Games in Rio this summer. The squad will finalised in June but Cavendish is set to be handed the chance to win a first Olympic medal after spending time training on the track at thenational cycling centre in Manchester last week. After a block of racing on the road, which followed the Track World Championships in early March, the Manxman's return to the boards is a clear indication that he is still at the forefront of the British Cycling selectors' minds. Another factor may be that Jon Dibben, who became world champion in the points race - the most important event in the Omnium - last month, broke his elbow last week in a crash at the ZLM Roompot Toer. The 22-year-old is set to undergo surgery on it today [Tuesday], though British Cycling have told Cyclingnews that he could be back on his bike next week and that his "Rio ambitions remain unaffected".ADVERTISEMENT Cavendish has made no secret of his desire to earn a place on the plane to Rio, and returned to the track last summer to kick off the process. Having based himself at the British national cycling centre in Manchester over the winter, heracked up the requisite qualification points in international competition and rode the Omnium at the Track Worlds in London at the start of March. His performance there was meant to have a big impact on his possible selection, which also hinged on the fact that whoever got the Omnium spot would also have to act as the fifth member of the team pursuit squad. While Dibben contributed to the pursuit team's silver medal and won gold in the points race, Cavendish only managed sixth in the Omnium, though he did taste Madison gold alongside Bradley Wiggins. The headache for the British Cycling selectors was compounded by the return of Ed Clancy after a serious back injury, with the former Omnium world champion putting in a strong ride as part of the pursuit quartet for the final ride. "I have total confidence that Mark can do the job in TP [team pursuit]. I've always believed that. I don't think that comes into the question for me,"said British Cycling technical director Shane Sutton after the Track Worlds. You can read more at Cyclingnews.com More...

Mark Cavendish must finish in the top three of the omnium at the next month's track world championships to be selected for the Rio Olympics, British cycling's technical director said on Friday.

News shorts: Cavendish committed to racing on track at Rio 2016 Olympics, says Salzwedel
August 16, 2015 (13:03) [ Indexed from Cyclingnews.com ]
Unfinished business for Cavendish on the track, says Salzwedel British Cycling endurance coach Heiko Salzwedel has said that Mark Cavendish is completely committed to racing on the track in the omnium at the Rio 2016 Olympics, saying that he has unfinished business after being the sole British rider not to win a medal on the boards in Beijing seven years ago. Cavendish will line up alongside Bradley Wiggins in the Revolution Series event in Derby this weekend in a bid to score qualifying points for the winters Track World Cup events, the first step towards earning a berth in Brazil next year.ADVERTISEMENT I was very surprised and very proud when we met and discovered how determined he is, Salzwedel told The Telegraph. "He has some unfinished business back from 2008 in his mind. He really wants to go to Rio with the track team and wants to go 100 per cent focused on the omnium. He doesn't come in saying 'we'll see how it goes,' it's clear in his mind, his focus and priorities. The Olympics is where Mark wants to be in 12 months time. The weekends event provides a useful dress rehearsal for Cavendishs preparations " the timing between the Tour de France and Olympic Games next year and this year's Tour and Revolution Series are exactly the same, Salzwedal pointed out " though Ed Clancy apparently remains the favourite to take Great Britains slot in in the omnium in Rio.
