“Is a race close to my heart”, injured Cavendish to be part of Milan-Sanremo

Mark Cavendish Milan-Sanremo


Mark Cavendish has decided to compete is this season’s Milan-Sanremo race which is set to take place on Saturday, Mar. 17. Apparently, the Team Dimension Data rider has been able to fully recover from his last rib fracture which he received when at Tirreno-Adriatico last week.


Although he continued racing at the Italian event and completed the stage, sadly, he was later ruled to have crossed the finish line outside of the time limit. He was able to finally join his teammates yesterday after getting the medical help he needed.


Getting enough support


“After crashing in Tirreno I’m obviously not in any sort of condition to win Milan-Sanremo. But having been able to train enough through the pain over the last few days I feel like I can go in support of my teammates,” said Cavendish.


“Milan-Sanremo is a race close to my heart. And it’s a particular style of race that reminding my body of the rhythm of it this year, will help me to compete for the win in future years.”



Included in the squad’s line-up are also Mark Renshaw, Scott Thwaites, Edvald Boasson Hagen, Julien Vermote, Stephen Cummings, and Jay Thomson.


“As a team we’re really happy ahead of one of the sport’s iconic races”, Sports Director Roger Hammond said. “It’s great to have Mark (Cavendish) return to an event that’s obviously very special to him.


“He’s had a run of bad luck, crashing in both Abu Dhabi and Tirreno-Adriatico. But despite fracturing a rib, and weather permitting, has managed to train.”
