Cycling: Cavendish aims to be in the pink
Saturday 28 April 2012
Team Sky's Mark Cavendish has targeted the leader's jersey and victory in the team time trial at the Giro d'Italia next month.
The Manx cyclist heads a nine-man squad for the race, which begins in Denmark on 5 May before moving to Italy.
It will be the first time Cavendish has ridden for Team Sky in a Grand Tour event since joining them.
"We want to win the team time trial and hopefully that will get us the pink jersey – if we could achieve that it would be a massive honour," he said. "It should be a really good three weeks."
Cavendish, who moved to Team Sky at the beginning of the season, has been competing with Bradley Wiggins in the Tour de Romandie, which finishes tomorrow.
