Cycling: Cavendish feels at home with Sky
Thursday 05 January 2012
Mark Cavendish says "coming home" to Team Sky is the perfect end to the most prolific year of his life. The Manxman won last year's Tour de France green jersey and world road race title and was recently recruited by Team Sky from HTC-Highroad.
Cavendish was unveiled as the head of the team's 10-strong British contingent, where he links up with the likes of Bradley Wiggins, Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas.
"It's the first time as a successful rider that I have moved team so I cannot compare the feeling to anything else," Cavendish said yesterday. "I can't imagine it would be anywhere near as easy to be in a team anywhere else. I really feel at home. It is like coming home."
