Mark Cavendish (HTC-Columbia) will be the top British name in the Tour of Catalonia, Spain's third biggest stage race which starts this Monday (March 22).

Cavendish is in the hunt for his first individual win of the season, and his chance could come as soon as the 3.6 kilometre prologue in Lloret de Mar, the same town where the Manxman took one of the earliest sprint wins of his career in a stage of Catalonia back in 2007.
