One Event Only for Cav

Manx cycling superstar Mark Cavendish will ride in only the Madison at the Beijing Olympics.

There had been the possibility of competing in this weekend's Individual Pursuit, but the Great Britain selectors have opted for Steven Burke as the second rider along with reigning World and Olympic Champion Bradley Wiggins.

Cav will team up with Wiggins in the 50 kilometer Madison on Tuesday morning.
