Mark Cavendish

Mark Cavendish has fulfilled his ambition of turning professional and will ride with the T-Mobile team as a stagiaire until the end of the season.

The 21 year-old from the Isle of Man will make his professional debut at the Tour of Denmark on August 2 and is also scheduled to ride the Tour of Britain and several other German races. After being with the T-Mobile development squad since 2005, Cavendish hopes his spell as a stagaire will get him a full contract with T-Mobile for 2007.
