Mark Cavendish will take centre stage for Omega-Pharma Quick-Step when the first of the year’s grand tours, the Giro d’Italia, springs into life this Saturday.

The Belgian team have named their team around the Manx Missile with the aim of helping him to victory in the various sprint stages that are on offer throughout the three weeks of racing in Italy.

The tour begins on Saturday with a 130km flat stage around the south-western city of Naples which is expected to end in a bunch sprint, giving Cavendish an excellent chance of claiming the maglia rosa heading into Sunday’s time trial.
