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.
In an interview Cavendish told that “Even if my form is not at the top, still I am going to ride. Even though I am not the first option for my team they might take me as a wild card. The chances of winning the Milan-San Remo is always there, you never know”.
He further added that “My form in the game at present is not that great, I know that, but I also know the route, I am aware how the race unfolds. This is an important thing and it always helps, so what I can do for the team that we will see.”
So, Cavendish is extremely hopeful for his win in the event and he also excited about it. Nevertheless, the actual result will only show the truth as who remains the winner. Till then, fans of Cavendish have to wait for the event to start and whether Cavendish will race in the event.
