Mark Cavendish portrait

New professional Mark Cavendish has been laid low by a ?bug? and will not now be taking part in his next scheduled race, the Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne one-day Classic in Belgium, this weekend.

The T-Mobile pro told CW that he has been ?in bed for a week, because of it. I?ve only just got up today [Wednesday], and I?m feeling a lot better, but this week without training means I?m definitely not doing Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne.
