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.
