Mark Cavendish returns to Tour de Yorkshire despite bad luck

It seems Dimension Data’s Cavendish won’t let bad luck get in his way, especially when it comes to building his name and reputation despite a rough early season.


The sprinter believes is now ready to hit the road after his last Milan-San Remo crash which made him step back and recover after somersaulted over a random traffic island.


“When the Tour started there in Yorkshire in 2014, it was like a dream,” Cavendish said.


“I never thought it would happen. Obviously it didn’t go how I wanted. It’s going to be incredible to be back,” he said. “It’s the people in Yorkshire – the friendliest people that you’ll ever meet – and they absolutely love bike riding.”


A fast recover time


Luckily, his injuries weren’t so serious and he is now happy to get back to racing at the Tour de Yorkshire since the latest crash. His first accident of the season was recorded at the Abu Dhabi Tour which left him out of the event and then, a couple of weeks later, he got involved in another crash at the time trial segment of this season’s Tirreno-Adriatico.


“My friends that have raced Yorkshire tell me that it’s no different to how the Tour de France was in terms of the amount of people that line the street,” he added.


“I know Sir Gary Verity, the organizer, and the Welcome to Yorkshire team very well. And I know that they do a tremendous job, so I’m looking forward to it. “I’m in my 13th year as a professional now and I feel as hungry as ever. I know I can win and I want to win. That won’t change. The moment it does change, it will be the time to stop,” Cavendish said ahead of the event.
