Bahrain McLaren sprinter Mark Cavendish has reiterated his desire to continue riding next season ahead of the final races of his 2020 season. The admission comes days after an emotional interview at Gent-Wevelgem, where the Briton had admitted it might be his last race as a professional.

Speaking before the start of Scheldeprijs on Wednesday, Cavendish attributed his emotions to a rumour that the remainder of the Belgian Classics could have been cancelled, making last Sunday's race – where he rode in the breakaway – his premature final bow.
