Cavendish off to Portugal next

Following his cracking Tour of Qatar campaign where he took four consecutive stage wins and the overall title, Mark Cavendish will now line-up at the Volta ao Algarve which starts tomorrow and finishes on Sunday.

His Omega Pharma-QuickStep team will be trying for the overall win with German Tony Martin leading the quest, but the first two stages should suit the Manx Missile.

And for bunch sprint fans, a season of rivalry between Cav and Slovak rider Peter Sagan at the big races could be on the cards.

Sagan has won for the second straight day at the Tour of Oman and leads the overall race.
