After winning omnium silver at Rio 2016, the 34-year-old might target a Olympic gold at the madison next year once it returns to the Games. The madison world that is three-time winner will associate Owain Doull at the Six Day event in Lee Valley from 22-27 October. “Transferring the madison in Tokyo remains a fascination,” he told BBC Sport. “Any time around the track is very excellent preparation for it and Six Day racing is great since it stays true to the bases of madison racing.” The multi-discipline Seven Day event will be broadcast and via BBC iPlayer, together with the racing such as points race, time evaluations, group eliminations, scratch races and the madison. Britain’s Cavendish was”heartbroken” after being left from this year’s Tour de France by Team Dimension Data, preventing him from adding to his 30 phase wins – off Belgian Eddy Merckx’s record. He has maintained racing on the road, such as at last week’s Tour of Britain, but he was confident of a strong showing back on the track in Lee Valley, where he won the last of his madison world names with Sir Bradley Wiggins at 2016. “I enjoy riding on the track, it complements my street riding,” said Cavendish. “I have to build up during the next few weeks since a bit more intensity comes from racing against men which have been training over the track for a while now. “It’s never easy to transition from road to track – but, having done it for several years, I understand what to do.” Wiggins and cavendish finished ninth in the madison in Beijing 2008 and the event was cut out of the two Olympics, but its return for Tokyo was announced in 2017, with Cavendish saying he was keen to compete. Cycling’s governing body, the UCI, has changed the points arrangement of the madison, in which two passengers alternative racing over 200 laps for guys and 120 laps for ladies, who will race it in Olympic level for first time in 2020. Cavendish stated the arrangement changes”remove” in the case and so 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 tactical now. Before, you had to plan your own race – now you just have to ride it,” he explained. “But it will not impact the ability of the rider” Cavendish has finished second in both of his previous Seven Day London appearances, alongside Peter Kennaugh at 2017 and Wiggins in 2016. Because he required a period of rest from cycling because of the virus he was forced to withdraw from a year’s occasion. “I am very excited to be back,” he said. “I was sad not to ride last year – I came down to watch and missed it. This velodrome is quite special to me. “It is truly constructed on London 2012 and Six Day is the highlight of this year now.” Champion Elinor Barker and Manon Lloyd will make a pairing at the girls contest. Welshman Doull, that won Olympic gold in the 2016 group pursuit, will soon be producing his Six Day introduction in London, having just finished his first Grand Tour at the Vuelta a Espana for Team Ineos. “I have completed a madison before with Owain but he’s 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 grow as a road rider so I understand physically he’ll be able and we should find a decent outcome.” Doull, 26, said that he”can’t wait” to race alongside a”British cycling legend” in Lee Valley. “I’ve heard great things about Six Day and will be determined to bring it home to Wales under the lights,” he added. Italy’s Olympic omnium winner Elia Viviani and Australian sprinter Caleb Ewan, who won three and one Tour de France stages this year respectively, will also be set to ride at Seven London. “It’s probably going to be the most competitive field I have hurried with here, together with men who would be the top sprinters of the creation,” said Cavendish. “I have had battles on the course with Elia before and it’ll be great to have home advantage this time. “There has been an increase of large, powerful sprinters for some time on the road, but it has encounter for small and fast men like myself. To have the three best guys like that at Six Day is a huge thing.” A couple’s woes, what pushes them and what drives them Road, trail, BMX, mountain and several more – there are many ways and motives to start biking.
