LONDON: Ace British rider Mark Cavendish has revealed that he is prepared to win the world road race title in Copenhagen in September. The 26-year-old, who is coming off a tremendous Tour de France where he won the green jersey, said that a favourable course and a strong British team supporting him gave him real cause for optimism for the championships. “I think with the team I have and the course, it is the best chance of my career to win the worlds,” he said. “It is not pan-flat, but it is flat. It is a technical circuit so we have to stay at the front quite a lot. We can go with a strong team and be the favourites to win.”
