Cavendish wants Olympic medal

Great Britain's Mark Cavendish says he is "super excited" about the 2014 Tour de France coming to the UK, and believes the first stage, which finishes in his mother's home town of Harrogate, would give him a chance to wear the race leader's yellow jersey for the first time.

Cavendish, who won two stages on this year's Tour, to take his overall tally to 25, also says he would love to win an Olympic medal, and does not rule out a return to the track at Rio 2016, but only if the preparations "tie in" with his road racing.
