Cav highly motivated for new season

Mark Cavendish's race programme for 2012 will be revealed on Wednesday (January 4).

The 2011 world road race champion is now back in Essex for training after spending part of the festive break in the Isle of Man.

He has been showing off his new Team Sky jersey which has the world champion's rainbow stripes across the chest.

Cavendish has been quoted as saying it's three years since he has been so motivated at the start of a season.

His major targets for 2012 are more stage wins in the Tour de France and, hopefully, a gold medal in the London Olympics.

Mark Cavendish was crowned BBC Sports Personality of the Year just before Christmas.
