Cavendish is back in England after his stage race victory in Qatar, where he triumphed by five seconds over Katusha's Alexander Kristoff, who won three of the five stages.

The Manxman's next big race is Milan-San Remo on March 19 - a race Cavendish won with HTC back in 2009.

He could still take part in the World Track Championships in March, saying he would decide on his participation while in Qatar.
