Cavendish set to start winning again at the Giro

Mark Cavendish, Tour of Oman, stage six

Mark Cavendish's season starts in Turin this Saturday (May 7). The Manxman may have been racing since January this year, but the Giro d'Italia is where it gets serious.

Cavendish has only taken two wins so far this season - a stage of the Tour of Oman and Scheldeprijs - but he still has a big year ahead of him. With the world championships in Copenhagen being run on a sprinters' course, his season is loaded toward the second half of the year.
