Mark Cavendish, the world champion, is likely to be seen working as a domestique to aid Bradley Wiggins' quest for the Tour de France yellow jersey.

The goal for Team Sky is to do everything they can to help Wiggins become the first British winner, and Cavendish is aiming to play his part when the race begins in Liège on Saturday. Cavendish wants to complete the Tour as conditioning for the Olympics, and is likely to be seen carrying bottles and protecting Wiggins in the final week to push his team-mate to Tour glory.
