MARK CAVENDISH LEADS STAR STUDDED LINE UP FOR ROUND 2
World Road Race Champion and Tour de France Green Jersey winner Mark Cavendish will make a rare appearance on the track as he takes part in Revolution on Saturday November 19th at Manchester’s National Cycling Centre.
It will be Cavendish’s first competitive outing in the Velodrome since 2008 and also the first time the World Road Race Champion has graced the Manchester boards.
