Cav missed drugs test last year

Manx cyclist Mark Cavendish has admitted missing an out-of-competition drugs test.

According to reports, he was filming for a TV company in Sicily, ahead of the Tour of Italy in May last year, when the breach occurred.

The Tour de France green jersey winner and world road race champion says he was tested a few weeks before the error, and twice in the fortnight after, and had around 60 tests in all in 2011.
