Cavendish targeting Milan San-Remo after win in Belgium

MARK CAVENDISH admits his attention is already turning to Milan San-Remo after winning Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne for the second time in his career.

Cavendish, who also won the Belgian one-day race in 2012, held off Katusha’s Alexander Kristoff and Elia Viviani of Team Sky in a bunch sprint.
The 29-year-old’s next big goal is Milan San-Remo, the first of the Spring Classics, on Sunday, March 22, where he will look to come out on top for the first time since 2009.
After recording his sixth victory of 2015 on Sunday, Cavendish was quick to salute his Etixx – Quick-Step team-mates for their part in the triumph.
“I knew it was going to be hard but I have been going good all year and the team looked after me superbly,” explained Cavendish. “I am super-proud to get this victory for Etixx
– Quick-Step. Because there was a headwind in the last corner, we used our guys too early – we were really quite far behind.
“Tom (Boonen, Cavendish’s Etixx – Quick-Step team-mate) wanted to go but I had already left him to go on to Kristoff’s wheel. I thought it was better to follow Kristoff – I know him and their team have been going good this year.
“I grew up watching and dreaming about Milan-San Remo, so I’d definitely like to give it another go – I’ve been training all winter for it.”
