Speaking to Cyclingnews at the Sydney Track World Cup, British rising star Mark Cavendish says he was upset when T-Mobile chose to leave the sport of cycling but he is confident in Bob Stapleton's High Road Sports. "It's no different really," he said. "I think that we still have the best manager in the sport."

"T-Mobile was a massive publicity chain; at least the baggage is gone with that. It's a shame that the sponsors have gone out of the sport, but I mean as far as the team goes it's no different, but its still a shame for the sport."

Cavendish is competing in Sydney as a member of British Cycling's national team and says his form is snapping back after a stretch of intercontinental travel. "I have only been training for three weeks. Gent was ok, but on ten days training it wasn't ideal."

Cavendish says his next stop is Beijing, China next week. "I'm looking forward to riding in Beijing, especially riding the events that I want to ride in the Olympics."
