Mark Cavendish will continue his bid to gain a track place at the 2016 Olympics by riding at the Dudenhofen GP.

Cavendish, 30, is looking for more qualification points at the event in Germany from 28-29 August in order to compete for GB in the omnium in Rio.

Coach co-ordinator Iain Dyer said: "He made a very promising start back on the track in Derby and he'll be looking to continue building on that form."

Cavendish won the Madison with Bradley Wiggins at the Derby Revolution.
