Robbins riding the dream

Cavendish, the Tour’s green jersey winner in 2011, has agreed a deal to support the 19-year-old who rides for the British Madison-Genesis team from 2016 in a new partnership.

“I am pretty much a full-time bike rider now. The workload has increased hugely due to the longer distances of the races I will be doing but the specifics within it are quite similar. I’m just doing more of them.”
