Cycling: Mark Cavendish hits car in training


Mark Cavendish said he was "relatively OK" after colliding with a car while training in Italy and following Bradley Wiggins and Shane Sutton to become British cycling's third well-known figure to crash in a road accident recently.

A car braked suddenly in front of the 2011 world road race champion, who last month left Team Sky for Omega Pharma-Lotto, leading the 27-year-old from the Isle of Man to tweet: "Hit the back of a car that slammed on in training. Wasn't ideal. Apart from a bruised arm, I'm relatively ok."
