Team GB back Tiernan-Locke bid
- From the section Cycling
Defending world road race champion Mark Cavendish says he "does not have a chance" of defending his title and reveals the team will be backing Tour of Britain winner Jonathan Tiernan-Locke.
Last year, Cavendish became the first Briton to win the race in 46 years, but does not believe the hilly 261km Dutch course will suit him.
Tiernan-Locke triumphed in the Tour of Britain earlier this month, becoming the first British rider to secure overall victory in 19 years.
