Mark Cavendish's thirst for victory at the Deceuninck

The British rider has recovered his sensations after difficult years and has shown that he can fight with the best of the peloton even if victory still resists him.


Mark Cavendish continues on his way to reconnect with the rider that he was and who dominated the flying on the grand tours for much of the late 2000s and much of the 2010s.

On his return to the Deceuninck Quick-Step Cavendish he has regained that hunger to fight for victories that he has lacked in recent seasons. However, Cavendish still has not released his record of triumphs in this 2021 despite having been second in the GP Monseré, second in a stage of the Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali and third in the GP Scheldt, where he started as a gregarious for his teammate Sam Bennett.

Cavendish himself confessed what happened in Scheldt in an interview with Wielerflits: "The intention was to race for Sam. We had options in the end, but things did not work out. When Philipsen passed me, I stepped aside to let Sam pass, but I think I should have having reacted and going after Philipsen and having responded better to this situation ".

Cavendish will have a new opportunity to meet again with that long-awaited victory from this next Sunday in the Tour of Turkey, where he will lead the team in the sprints together with Fabio Jakobsen, who will return to compete eight months after his serious accident in the Tour of Poland. In this way the Briton wants to thank the opportunity that Deceuninck has given him to welcome the prodigal son, who now wants to return with triumphs at 35 years of age. "I feel good and happy to be in the team. Only victory resists me. Patrick Lefevere will not rest until I have it. I have to do it especially for him."
