Mark Cavendish makes himself available for Team GB’s Olympic squad

Great Britain cyclist Mark Cavendish has taken another step towards a possible conjure for an Olympic medal in Rio by making himself formally available for selection following a meeting in Italy along with the team management of Great Britain after the recent track world events in London, UK.

It is now up to the section panel whether they would select him and recommend it to the British Olympic Association. The team will be finalized on June. Mark has revealed that he would prefer to ride the 6 event omnium for Great Britain, but he would also have to prove himself in team pursuit, where the omnium rider would be required to ride one round at least.

Shane Sutton, the Great Britain technical director, told that they told him to go away and think about whether he wanted to put himself up for selection. He got up to the bronze medal position at one point in the omnium in London; and given he ended in top 5 in the worlds he wants to put himself forward.

Sutton told that he felt the cycling world had seen two different Cavendishes, who are very different from each other. Wiggins told that the way he rode the Madison was totally different. In the omnium he was not confident enough, he was really worried about holding onto what he had. He believes that Mark would be in Rio and he wanted want him there.
