Mark Cavendish has been on Twitter today for an impromptu Q&A session. He has been asked about his diet, racing rituals and techniques as well as his hobbies and interests.
As expected though, many fans have been asking about the shoulder injury he suffered on Stage One of the Tour de France:
.@mjmjcj it's on the mend thank you. I have some great people helping me out.
Asked whether he thought Team Sky would regret not putting Bradley Wiggans and Chris Froome in their line up, especially following Froome's injury and withdrawal, Cavendish was carefully diplomatic in his response:
.@andybigfella I'd have loved to see Brad at the Tour.
But he is determined to be back up and running in good time to compete for next year's Tour.
.@mtbrider3886 next year!!!!!
