August 17, 2021 (13:30) [ Indexed from ]
Mark Cavendishwill take to the boards again this autumn when he lines out at Six Day London, which takes place at Lee Valley VeloPark from October 22-27. The Manxman has participated in the event on two previous occasions, in 2016 and 2017. "I am incredibly excited to announce that Ill be back competing at Phynova Six Day London in October at the iconic velodrome," Cavendish said in a statement on Wednesday. "Six Day London is one of the UKs leading track cycling events, and from previous experience I know how competitive the field will be. Its a great event for elite cyclists and it allows another opportunity to prepare for 2020 in the most competitive arena, against some of the best riders in the world."ADVERTISEMENT Cavendish will share top billing at the event with Olympic omnium champion Elia Viviani, who last week confirmed his participation in London. Cavendish claimed the bronze medal behind Viviani at the Rio 2016 Olympics. The Italian will avail of the London event to prepare for the following Track World Cup in Minsk as he seeks to secure qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. "I am pleased to see Elia Viviani named as a fellow rider at Phynova Six Day London, he is a quality athlete and we have always enjoyed a healthy rivalry so Im sure we will give the fans something exciting to watch," Cavendish said.

Mark Cavendish battles uphill to make time cut at Tour of California
May 14, 2019 (09:15) [ Indexed from ]
Dimension Data's Mark Cavendish lives to fight another day at the 2019 Tour of California, despite having lost contact with the back of the race with 80km of the 214.5km-long stage 2 still to go on Monday. While he may ordinarily have been in danger of finishing outside the time limit, the long nature of the stage meant that the cut-off time was set at 60 minutes after the stage winner, and the British sprinter was able to make it to the finish 36:09 behind the day's victor, Kasper Asgreen of Deceuninck-QuickStep. The second stage's unrelenting climbing from Rancho Cordova to South Lake Tahoe, which peaks out at2,627 metres of elevation, proved too much for Cavendish, and he lost contact with the race with around 80km to go, struggling to regain contact with the peloton despite teammate Bernie Eisel's efforts to help.ADVERTISEMENT The day's climbs were not especially steep, but more than 4,500 metres of climbing at altitude made for a long day for everyone, and Cavendish was left with Eisel to try to battle through the stage, and the pair were already more than 12 minutes off the pace with 70km remaining. Photographers at the race told Cyclingnews that Cavendish at one point shouted at Eisel to go back up the road to try to rejoin the race, but the ever-faithful Austrian stuck by his friend and team leader to shepherd him through the stage. Indeed, Eisel and Cavendish are no strangers to battling through mountain stages together to try to get home inside the time limit. A seemingly upbeat Cavendish tweeted after Monday's stage that he was glad to have ticked the Lake Tahoe stage off this year's race route, and that it was "like a re-run of our day in 2016" " presumably referring to the eighth stage from Pau toBagnres-de-Luchon at the 2016 Tour de France, when Cavendish and Eisel were left to fend for themselves on what was a boiling hot day in the Pyrenees, but eventually made it back into the gruppetto, and finished 39:24 behind the day's winner, Chris Froome.

Mark Cavendish and Peter Sagan to ride Vuelta a San Juan
November 07, 2018 (12:15) [ Indexed from ]
Mark Cavendish and Peter Sagan will be headline names at the 2019 Vuelta a San Juan, it has been confirmed. It will be the first time that the pair have ridden the South American race, having previously ridden the now-defunct Tour de San Luis. "We are happy to confirm it, San Juan sports minister Jorge Chica told Argentinian publication Diario de Cuyo. "The talks have been going on for some months and today, finally, we can confirm that Sagan will be here, giving more prestige to our Vuelta. They are figures that will give [the race] an extraordinary level."ADVERTISEMENT Last month, Sagan told Cyclingnews that he intended on riding the South American race for the first time. He had already been confirmed to start the opening round of the WorldTour Tour Down Under, which he has ridden the past two years. Sagan has previously ridden the Tour de San Luis, most recently in 2016 [the final edition of the race -ed], but it and the Vuelta a San Juan have traditionally clashed with the Tour Down Under. However, there will be no such issues for the Slovakian next year with San Juan set to start a few days later. While the Tour Down Under will take place between January 15 to 20, the Vuelta a San Juan is slated for January 27 to February 3. Cavendish last started his season in South America in 2015, where he won the final stage of the Tour de San Luis. In recent years, the Manxman has opted to begin his year at the Dubai Tour and this will also be the first time in two years that he has begun racing in January. You can read more at More...

Renshaw extends with Dimension Data
October 12, 2018 (08:00) [ Indexed from ]
Mark Cavendish lead-out man Mark Renshaw has extended his contract with Dimension Data, taking him through 2019 with the South African team that benefits the Qhubeka charity. Im looking forward to racing my 16th season professionally with Dimension Data for Qhubeka in 2019," the 35-year-old Australian said in a statement released by the team. "This will be my fourth season with the team where we have had some great success over the past three years. Im excited to meet all my current teammates and all the new riders that will join us next season at our training camp in Cape Town next month," he said.ADVERTISEMENT Renshaw joined the team in 2016, following Cavendish from Etixx-QuickStep. Cavendish had been rumoured to be considering a move away from the South African team after three years, and he and his representatives had talked to a number of teams over the past few months. Dimension Data added Italian sprinter Giaccomo Nizzolo to the 2019 roster in September, adding more fuel to the transfer rumours.However,La Gazzetta dello Sport reported late last week that the British sprinter had reached an agreement with Dimension Data to add another year to his contract. Now Renshaw is in the fold again as well. Working with our new sprinter Giacomo Nizzolo next season as well seeing Ryan Gibbons continue to develop will be very exciting," Renshaw said. "I'm looking forward to helping him and our other leaders in the sprint finals next season in my favourite position of lead-out rider. I will be sharing all my years of experience on the road to bring the team our best results." " Mark Renshaw (@Mark_Renshaw) October 11, 2018 You can read more at More...
Mark Cavendish to miss Arctic Race of Norway
August 14, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from ]
Dimension Data will head to the Arctic Race of Norway without sprinter Mark Cavendish, despite the Manxman being announced as a headliner by the race organisation last week. Cavendish missed the European Championships after being advised by his medical team to not race because of unspecified "unfortunate injuries". Dimension Data confirmed that Cavendish will skip Norway but gave no further details. "An update on Mark's return to racing will be given in due course," the team announced.ADVERTISEMENT Cavendish finished 12th in the Prudential RideLondon after being eliminated from the Tour de France on stage 11, missing the time cut on a brutal mountain stage along with teammate Mark Renshaw and Katusha-Alpecin's Marcel Kittel. Bernard Eisel will replace Cavendish, continuing his return from a subdural hematoma, having raced the Tour de Pologne last week. He is joined by Mekseb Debesay, Jacques Janse van Rensburg and two trainees Kent Main and Connor Swift. Main, 22, comes from the Dimension Data continental squad, while Swift, the British national champion, joins the squad from Madison Genesis. You can read more at More...
Mark Cavendish to ride Arctic Race of Norway
August 10, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from ]
Mark Cavendish will make his debut at the Arctic Race of Norway later this month, the organisers have announced. Cavendish will be joined by climber Mekseb Debesay and stagiaire, and British national champion, Connor Swift, with the rest of the DimensionData team for the race yet to be announced. Cavendish is the biggest confirmed name in the sprint field and is set to go up against Christophe Laporte (Cofidis), Andrea Pasqualon (Wanty-Groupe Gobert) and Sondre Holst Enger (Israel Cycling Academy). The Arctic Race of Norway will be only the second race back for Cavendish after he missed the time cut on stage 11 of the Tour de France. Cavendish returned to racing at the RideLondon-Surrey Classic at the end of last month, where he finished 12th. He was due to compete in the road race at the European Championships this weekend but was advised by doctors to rest.ADVERTISEMENT The 2018 season has been a particularly challenging one for Cavendish after a litany of early-season crashes. It started well with a stage win at the Dubai Tour, but he was forced to abandon the Abu Dhabi Tour on stage 1 when a faulty brake sensor caused one of the race vehicles to slow into the bunch during the neutral zone and sparking a crash. Cavendish was subsequently diagnosed with a concussion, though he was able to return to compete at Tirreno-Adriatico a few weeks later. However, he crashed heavily during the opening team time trial when he hit a pothole, leaving him with a broken rib. He broke a second rib in a huge crash at his next race, Milan-San Remo. The Manxman collided with a piece of road furniture with under 10 kilometres remaining and was dramatically catapulted from his bike. Following his third successive crash, Cavendish took a two-month break from racing before making his comeback at the Tour de Yorkshire at the start of May. He rode the Tour of California, Tour of Slovenia, Adriatica Ionica Race and the national championships ahead of the Tour de France. You can read more at More...

Paris-Roubaix: Dimension Data underdogs in search of luck
April 07, 2018 (20:00) [ Indexed from ]
Ravaged by injuries to several high-profile riders, and without a clear favourite, Dimension Data head into Paris-Roubaix hoping that fortune will be on their side. The team are missing Mark Cavendish, Bernhard Eisel, and Scott Thwaites through injury, while perennial Classics hope, Edvald Boasson Hagen, is still searching for his best from having had his spleen removed during the off-season. The Norwegian claimed fourth in Dwars door Vlaanderen before finishing 19th at the Tour of Flanders, and having finished fifth in Paris-Roubaix two seasons ago, will be looking for a strong performance. Julian Vermote dislocated his shoulder in the Tour of Flanders but is scheduled to race this Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT For directeur sportif, Rolf Aldag, the weather for Paris-Roubaix will be a significant factor. Although rain is not scheduled for Sunday the recent wet weather has left several sectors of cobbles covered in thick mud. Im not a weatherman so I cant predict what it will be like on race day but as far as our recon was concerned on Thursday, Ive never seen conditions like that before, Aldag said. Aldag was one of the few riders to race and finish the last truly wet Paris-Roubaix back in 2002, finishing 25th on a day that saw less than 45 riders make it to the velodrome.
