“Only one more year, huh?” Mark Cavendish declares that he will keep competing – video.
Despite announcing his retirement in May, Mark Cavendish has decided to continue competing for Astana-Qazaqstan in 2024. The 38-year-old’s goal is to achieve his 35th stage win in the Tour de France, breaking the record. Initially planning to end his illustrious career after the Giro d’Italia in May, Cavendish was motivated to keep racing by his family. During this year’s Tour, he aimed to surpass Eddy Merckx’s 34 stage wins but fell short and sustained an injury. In a recent video, Cavendish shared that he has been convinced to continue racing by his loved ones.
