Mark Cavendish, stage winner, Tour of Britain 2013, stage seven

Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) will skip Milan-San Remo next year due to the course change. The 2009 winner may never race the Italian Monument again.

"I won't take part," Cavendish told La Gazzetta dello Sport newspaper. "And if the route remains the way it is, maybe I'll never race it again. My 2009 win is destined to remain the only one."
