Mark Cavendish withdraws from Tour of Britain

Mark Cavendish pulls out of the Tour of Britain after crashing during the sixth stage.

Mark Cavendish has withdrawn from the Tour of Britain after crashing during the sixth stage of the race on Friday.

The 30-year-old initially remounted after the incident on the Stoke to Nottingham stage before Etixx-Quick Step later confirmed that the rider had withdrawn, adding that more information on his condition would be provided after the race.

Meanwhile, Cavendish's wife Peta Cavendish tweeted: "Have spoken to the boy a few times, he is ok... we still don't know for sure the extent of injuries. But it could have been a lot worse."

Cavendish's crash came on the day he was named in Great Britain's team for this month's UCI Road World Championships.
