The demise of HTC-Highroad frees Mark Cavendish to announce his impending move to Team Sky. Some sources say the deal was done months ago but the British sprinter has so far remained tight lipped about his plans.

Earlier in the week Cavendish told the BBC that he had made his decision and was happy with it. He is expected to announce the move any day. "A number of teams have expressed interest in me riding for them in 2012. I have now made a decision I am happy with and will be in a position to discuss my intentions once everything has been finalised." He said today in a statement on his website.
