Mark Cavendish says that his 2017 season will be built around the Tour de France as he re-focusses his aims after a 2016 spent on the road and track.

The 31-year-old Manxman's busy year saw him take four stages of the Tour de France – the most he has taken in one edition since 2011 – and a silver medal in the omnium at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. He then went on to win the Ghent Six Day in Belgium with Bradley Wiggins.
