Cavendish Hopeful For Winning Milan-San Remo


Even after delayed start of the training and steady start to racing, Mark Cavendish admits that his chances of winning Milan-San Remo of this year are high.


However, describing himself a ‘wild card’ in the selection of Dimension Data for La Classicissima he said I still have all the potential to make it big in the event. This is because; he knows that if the event turns into the race of controlled sprinter then he has the experience of winning it.

In his debut appearance, Mark won the Milan-San Remo in 2009. That time he was in a great form and thus he managed to stay ahead of the group, in spite of attacks on the Poggio and Cipressa climbs. In final kilometers, he moved up via peloton and then race to catch and beat Heinrich Haussler narrowly.

Cavendish Confirmed For Ghent Six Day


The Ghent Six Day will be taking place this November and this race will see two friends riding alongside each other.


One of them is Sir Bradley Wiggins and this will be his last race of his cycling career. The other is his close friend Mark Cavendish, who had teamed up with Sir Bradley to win the Madison Championship.

Both of them will be entering this race after a successful Olympic stint. Sir Bradley got his fifth gold medal at Rio and Mark finished the race in the second position to win a silver medal. Ghent is Wiggins’s birth place and there is no better place to sign off his racing career than Ghent. Bradley rode this iconic race for the first time in 2003 and won it with partner Matthew Gilmore. Mark took part in this race in 2014 and just missed winning the race along with partner IIjo Keisse.

Cavendish acknowledges that Ghent Six Day is always a historic event. He feels that this race of 2016 will be even ore special for him as he will be riding along with Sir Bradley. Also, this is the race that Bradley has earmarked to end his career and therefore all eyes will be on the pair during the race.
