Geraint Thomas hopes Mark Cavendish will join Team Sky

Geraint Thomas says it would be "amazing" if new road world champion Mark Cavendish were to join him at Team Sky next year.

Welshman Thomas was part of the eight-man Great Britain team that helped Cavendish to victory in Copenhagen on Sunday, the first win by a British man in the race since Tom Simpson in 1965.

Cavendish is expected to announce soon that he will join Team Sky, already home to six of his GB team-mates.

Thomas, Olympic champion in team pursuit in 2008, also says he is likely to miss next year's Tour de France in order to focus 100% on winning defending that title in the velodrome at London 2012.
