Mark Cavendish is looking for a new two-year contract for 2023 and 2024, with the hope of riding the Tour de France at least one more time and having a chance at beating Eddy Merckx's stage win record.

Cavendish turns 37 on Friday and is arguably the greatest sprinter of all time and has little to prove. But he is still hungry to win and still fast in sprints. He won four stages and the green points jersey at last year's Tour de France and five victories in other races. He won stage 3 of this year's Giro d'Italia in Balatonfüred and was again close to victory in Cuneo.
