Trying to get better


Cavendish, the former world champion, has been struggling with several illnesses and injuries since his Tour de France appearance las month when he had to abandon the race on stage 11.


“It’s incredibly disappointing to have to withdraw. Being selected to compete for my country is a huge honour. And I had been looking forward to racing with the team,” he said.



“However, given what’s been a challenging few months in terms of aiming to sufficiently recover from some unfortunate injuries in time to compete, I’ve been advised that at this stage the best thing is for me to withdraw from Sunday’s race.”


Now, the Great Britain team will have to replace Cavendish with former bronze medallist of the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi,  his fellow Manxman Mark Christian.
