Sprint revelation Mark Cavendish (T-Mobile) has stated that he would like to take part in the Ghent six day this winter. Speaking to Sportwereld after taking part in the Derny criterium in Wetteren, the Isle of Man neo-professional said he would prefer to take part in the event with fellow country man and future team-mate Bradley Wiggins.

For the event's organiser, Patrick Sercu, the British duo may well be exactly what the event needs to attract an even larger number of British spectators than the event already experiences now. For Cavendish the event, which takes place from November 20 to 25, could serve as good preparation for the Track World Cup event in Beijing, which he is intends on contesting with Wiggins in order to qualify for the 2008 Olympics Games in China.
