Mark Cavendish 'focusing on right now' ahead of uncertain future

The Manxman will return to track racing at Six Day London this October

It's a relatively quiet morning in East London. Relatively because of Mark Cavendish, who is barking orders at Caleb Ewan as the pair whizz round the track at the London Olympic velodrome.

The two WorldTour riders are taking it in turns to slingshot each other for the assembled photographers, with Cavendish showing the rider nine years his junior slight alterations to perfect his hand positioning.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
