Trek Factory Racing’s general manager, Luca Guercilena, has told Cyclingnews that there is only a 35 per cent chance of his team signing sprinter Mark Cavendish for 2016.

Cavendish is out of contract for next season but has been linked with a volley of WorldTour teams included Trek Factory Racing, MTN-Qhubeka and BMC. His current team, Etixx-QuickStep have yet to offer him a formal deal, although the two parties continue to talk and negotiate.
