Taking to Twitter, Cav broke the news, citing a lack of training since recovering from illness:
Disappointed to say, after just 4 days training since recovering from my illness, I won’t be riding @sixdaycycling London. Gutted. I’ll be there supporting though. Always a great party. pic.twitter.com/QwyEIJKTmK— Mark Cavendish (@MarkCavendish) October 17, 2018
