Mark Cavendish's mixed messages about Milan-San Remo chances

Mark Cavendish speaks after stage three, Tirreno-Adriatico 2013

Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) remains unsure of his chances to win a second Milan-San Remo on Sunday, March 17. When pressed, he refused to say he could win the Italian Monument. He ruled it out while at the same time saying he would skip it if he thought he had no chance of winning.

"I can't win it," Cavendish said at Tirreno-Adriatico last week. "I can win it, that's why I'll always ride, but it'll take a special set of circumstances to do that."
