From Jack Skelton BBC Sport Mark Cavendish says as he prepares to return to the track at Six Day London in October, he is still in racing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics interested. After winning omnium silver at Rio 2016, the 34-year-old can aim a first gold in the madison when it yields to the Games next year. The three-time madison world champion will associate Owain Doull from the Six Day event in Lee Valley from 22-27 October. “Riding the madison in Tokyo is still a fascination,” he told BBC Sport. “Whenever on the monitor is excellent prep for it and Six Day racing is good because it remains true to the bases of madison racing.” The multi-discipline Seven Day event will be broadcast and through BBC iPlayer, together with the racing such as scratch races, time trials, group eliminations, the madison and points race. Britain’s Cavendish was”heartbroken” after being left from the year’s Tour de France by Team Dimension Data, preventing him from adding to his own 30 stage wins – four off Eddy Merckx’s record. He’s kept racing around the street, including at last week’s Tour of Britain, but said he had been confident of a strong showing back on the trail at Lee Valley, where he won the final of his own madison world titles with Sir Bradley Wiggins in 2016. “I enjoy riding on the track, it annoys my road riding,” said Cavendish. “I have to build up during the next few weeks since a bit more intensity comes in racing against guys which have been training over the course for a little while now. “It is never easy to transition from street to track – however, having done it for several decades, I understand what to do.” Cavendish and Wiggins finished ninth at the madison and the episode was cut out of the two Olympics, but its recurrence for Tokyo was declared in 2017. Cycling’s governing body, the UCI, has altered the points structure of the madison, where two riders alternate racing around 200 laps for men and 120 laps for both ladies, who’ll race it in Olympic level for the first time in 2020. Cavendish explained the arrangement changes”take away” in the case and so the Six Day madison holds more”sentimental value”, but it wouldn’t put off him racing in Tokyo 2020. “It’s a lot less strategic today. Before, you had to plan your race – now you just have to ride it,” he explained. “But it will not influence the capacity of the rider” Cavendish has finished second in either of his Seven Day London appearances, alongside Wiggins at 2016 and Peter Kennaugh in 2017. Because he took a period of rest from cycling because of the Epstein-Barr virus, he had been forced to withdraw from last year’s occasion. “I’m very excited to be back,” he explained. “I was sad to not ride last year – that I came down to observe and missed it. This velodrome is very special to me personally. “It’s truly constructed on London 2012 and Six Day would be the highlight of this calendar year today.” Olympic champion Elinor Barker and Manon Lloyd will create an all-Welsh pairing at the women contest that is elite. Welshman Doull, who won Olympic gold in the 2016 group pursuit, will soon be making his Six Day introduction in London, having just completed his first Grand Tour at the Vuelta a Espana to get Team Ineos. “I have completed a madison before with Owain but he has never done that a Six Day so that I’ll show him the ropes,” said Cavendish. “We all wrapped together in Rio and I have seen him grow as a street rider so I know physically he will manage and we should find an adequate result.” Doull, 26, said that he”can not wait” to race alongside a”British cycling legend” in Lee Valley. “I’ve heard great things about Six Day and will probably be decided to bring it home to Wales under the lights,” he added. Italy’s Olympic omnium champion Elia Viviani and Australian sprinter Caleb Ewan, that won one and three Tour de France phases this season respectively, are also set to ride at Six Day London. “It’s probably going to be the most competitive field I’ve raced with here, with guys who would be the best sprinters of the own generation,” explained Cavendish. “I have had battles on the trail with Elia before and it will be wonderful to have home advantage this time. “There was an increase of big, strong sprinters for a while on the road, but it has encounter for small and fast guys like myself. To have the three best men like this at Six Day is a big thing.” A couple of anxieties, what pushes them and what drives them Road BMX, mountain and several more – there are many methods and reasons to start cycling.
