Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins will be reforming the partnership that won the 2008 Madison World Title at the UCI Track World Championship in London.
Whilst Wiggins has stepped away from road cycling to focus entirely on the Olympics, Cavendish will continue to balance his road and track ambitions. He has been in very good form so far this season, taking the overall and a stage win at the Tour of Qatar.
His last track outing at the World Cup meet in Hong Kong saw the British star sprinter take 4th in the Omnium. The expectation is that he will have taken improvement out of that performance and will soon be ready to show his best form in the velodrome.
“They are back together and it will be nice to see them out there,” said Great Britain’s technical director Shane Sutton. Certainly, the pair will get the star billing at the Track World Championships and all eyes will be on them to see if they are ready for the Rio Olympics.
SBS2 will broadcast the Track World Championships from 3-6 March with Cycling Central also live-streaming the event.
