Mark Cavendish begins his season in the Tour of Qatar on Sunday, but he aims to win all year long. His said that his early goal is another Milan-San Remo win, this time in the rainbow jersey, but he will take any opportunity to win prior to the London Olympics in August.

"The last couple of seasons it's always just been about the Tour de France but now I want to repeat 2009 where I was successful throughout the whole season, and I don't want to be chasing July. I want to know exactly where I am in May and June so I can perform my best at the Tour de France and the Olympics," Cavendish said on Sky's website.
