Manx missile looking for re-launch asap

Mark Cavendish has scotched rumours of possible retirement.

It was revealed yesterday (Wed) that the cyclist has the virus that causes glandular fever and would be out of racing for an indefinite period.

It's prompted speculation in some circles that the Manx Missile may ponder quitting racing altogether.

However, in short web message to his fans, Cav says whilst disappointed at the enforced move, he's looking forward to getting back in the saddle.
