By Jack Skelton BBC Sport Mark Cavendish says as he prepares to come back to the monitor at Six Day London in October, he is in racing in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics interested. After winning omnium silver in Rio 2016, the 34-year-old can target a Olympic gold at the madison next year, when it contributes to the Games. The madison world that is three-time champion will partner Owain Doull at the Six Day event at Lee Valley from 22-27 October. “Riding the madison in Tokyo remains an interest,” he told BBC Sport. “Any time on the track is great preparation for it Six Day racing is good because it stays true to the bases of madison racing.” The multi-discipline Seven Day event will be aired and through BBC iPlayer, together with the racing including points race, time trials, group eliminations, scratch races and the madison. Britain’s Cavendish was”heartbroken” after being left from the season’s Tour de France by Team Dimension Data, preventing him from adding to his 30 stage wins – off Belgian Eddy Merckx’s record. He has kept racing around the street, such as in last week’s Tour of Britain, but he had been confident of a strong showing back on the trail in Lee Valley, at which he won the last of his madison world names with Sir Bradley Wiggins at 2016. “I like riding on the track, it simplifies my road riding,” said Cavendish. “I have to build up during the next couple of weeks since a little more intensity comes from racing against men which have been training over the track for a while now. “It is never easy to transition from road to monitor – but, having done it for many decades, I understand just what to do.” Wiggins and cavendish finished ninth at the madison in Beijing 2008 and the episode was cut from the subsequent two Olympics, but its recurrence for Tokyo was announced in 2017. Cycling’s governing body, the UCI, has changed the points arrangement of this madison, in which two passengers alternative racing over 200 laps for both men and 120 laps for most ladies, who’ll race it at Olympic level for first time in 2020. Cavendish stated the format changes”take away” in the case and the Six Day madison retains more”sentimental value”, but it would not put off him racing in Tokyo 2020. “it is a great deal less strategic now. Before, you really had to plan your race now you just have to ride it,” he explained. “But it will not impact the capacity of the rider” Cavendish has finished second in both of his Six Day London appearances, alongside Wiggins in 2016 and Peter Kennaugh at 2017. As he took a time of overall rest from biking because of the virus, he had been forced to withdraw from last year’s occasion. “I am very excited to be back,” he explained. “I was miserable to not ride year – that I came to observe and overlooked it. This velodrome is extremely special to me. “It’s really built on London 2012 and Six Day would be the highlight of the calendar year now.” Manon Lloyd and champion Elinor Barker will form a all-Welsh pairing in the women contest that is elite. Welshman Doull, that won Olympic gold at the 2016 team pursuit, will be producing his Six Day debut at London, having just completed his first Grand Tour in the Vuelta a Espana to get Team Ineos. “I’ve 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’ve seen him develop as a street rider, therefore I understand physically he’ll be able and we should find an adequate result.” Doull, 26, said that he”can’t wait” to race alongside a”British biking legend” in Lee Valley. “I’ve heard great things about Six Day and will probably be decided to bring it home for Wales under the lights,” he added. Italy’s Olympic omnium winner Elia Viviani and Australian sprinter Caleb Ewan, who won one and three Tour de France stages this season respectively, will also be put to ride at Seven London. “It is probably going to be the most aggressive field I have raced with here, with men who will be the greatest sprinters of their own generation,” said Cavendish. “I’ve had battles on the course with Elia earlier and it’ll be wonderful to have home advantage this time. “There was a rise of big, strong sprinters for some time on the road, but it’s encounter for small and quick men like myself. To get the three best guys like this at Seven Day is a major thing.” A couple of anxieties, what drives them apart, and what pushes them together Road, track, BMX, mountain and more – there are so many methods and motives to begin biking.
