Manx Missile hasn't raced since Tour De France crash

Mark Cavendish has been pictured out riding once more following his Tour de France heartbreak earlier this summer.

The 'Manx Missile' has been seen out on a casual ride with Israel-PremierTech's Chris Froome and INEOS Grenadiers competitor, Cameron Wurf with Froome posting the meet-up on social media.

38-year-old Cavendish hasn't raced competitively since July when he was forced to withdraw from this year's Tour de France following a crash on stage eight which saw him require surgery on a fractured collarbone.

With the Astana Qazaqstan team, he'd been hunting the chance to break the all-time stage win record for the event which he currently shares with cycling legend, Eddie Merckx on 34 victories.

Up until his withdrawal from the event, Cavendish had put in some impressive displays including three top-ten finishes which also included a second-place podium finish on stage seven.

In May this year, Cavendish announced at the 2023 Giro D'Italia that he intends to retire at the end of the current campaign.
