Mark Cavendish aims to take his team Etixx-Quick Step to a win in his first race of the year, Argentina's Tour de San Luis, starting on Monday.

"The race won't be easy," Cavendish said. "I don't know how I feel compared to last year, we'll see. I did some good training in the last week. I like the parcours and there are a few chances for guys like me. I hope we can get a victory."
