Mark Cavendish is not planning on winning the green jersey in the Tour de France. This year the world champion of Team Sky has other goals, along with his team.

Cavendish hopes to shine at the Olympic road race and wants to see his teammate Bradley Wiggins win the Tour de France.

“I’ve got other goals apart from the Tour de France. It’s going to be a long July. I’ve been working on a lot of things, not just my sprint. I may not dominate the sprints like before but I should be there or thereabouts.”

Nevertheless Cav hopes to win stages. “But I don’t think stage wins alone will be enough to win the green jersey this year, you’ll have to go for the intermediates as well. I haven’t got my eyes on green to be honest but of course there’s always a chance.
