Promising Returns for Cav and Kennaugh

Manx professional cyclists Mark Cavendish and Peter Kennaugh made promising returns to action in the Tour of Romandie prologue in Switzerland.

Cavendish finished the 4.3 kilometre course in 18th place - just 9 seconds slower than the fastest time set by HTC Columbia team-mate Marco Pinotti.

After missing two months due to a broken collarbone, Peter Kennaugh was the third quickest of the Team Sky riders in 89th place of the 159 competitors - 5 minutes 36 seconds down.

The first stage of five is today and takes place over a hilly 175.6 kilometres which includes two category one climbs.
