Deceuninck - Quick-Step boss Patrick Lefevere has said he's mulling over whether to sign Mark Cavendish for 2021, saying it's currently a battle between his heart and his head.

Cavendish, who rode for Lefevere for three seasons from 2013-2015 when the team was called Omega Pharma - Quick-Step, is out of contract with Bahrain-McLaren at the end of the year but says he's not ready to retire just yet.

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.
