Despite having a relatively quiet Tour De France so far, Mark Cavendish is eyeing a fourth success on the Champs-Elysees on Sunday.

The main focus of the World Champion's attention is currently the impending Olympics, in which he is seen as Great Britain’s number one hope of a gold medal.

He’s been persevering through the Mountain stages in the tour over the past few days, taking to his Twitter account to say the effort and strain was causing him to vomit whilst riding.

If he bags the fourth consecutive win in Paris it will put him alongside French sprinter Andre Darrigade with 22 stage wins.
