Not only is Mark Cavendish quick on a bike, he’s also pretty speedy at solving a Rubik’s Cube it appears.

The Dimension Data rider revealed to the Peloton Brief that he uses his Rubik’s Cube as a way to relax, but also a way to keep himself busy during such times as the take off and landing of a plane journey.

Cavendish reveals he got into Rubik’s Cube through former teammate Alessandro Petacchi, who was born in the same year that the handheld puzzle was invented in 1974.

Here, new teammate Nathan Haas plays the role of Cube scrambler and official timekeeper.

We won’t give away just how fast Cavendish solved the puzzle on camera, but he mentions at the start of the video that if it takes him more than two minutes to finish he gets a bit angry.

Will we see angry Cav or happy Cav? Watch the video above to find out.
