Cavendish to be stagiaire with T-Mobile

The 21-year-old British rider Mark Cavendish will be riding as a stagiaire with T-Mobile Team as of August 1, it was announced Wednesday. He has been riding for the T-Mobile development program under trainer Heiko Salzwedel.

"Mark rode a strong Tour of Berlin and that recommended him," said Salzwedel. "It is planned that he will ride in Rund um die Hainleite, the Sparkasse Giro Bochum, the Tour of Britain and the Hessen Rundfahrt," said Mario Kummer, T-Mobile's Sport-Technical Director.

Cavendish is world champion in the two-man track time trial, and is considered Britain's biggest sprinting talent. "In Berlin he proved that he is also good in time trialing and comes over the mountains well," according to Salzwedel. "Mark is one of those young men with fast legs who doesn't show any fear in the last meters."
