Mark Cavendish may join Bahrain-merida

Cycling Weekly - - WHAT YOU’RE SAYING -

I think Di­men­sion Data are mak­ing a good de­ci­sion in not re-sign­ing him, in all hon­esty. He isn’t worth the silly fee he will be ask­ing. Yes, he was an OK sprinter but doesn’t have the speed of the new gen­er­a­tion. Dean Teifel

He has won 30 stages of the Tour de France plus stages of the Giro and the Vuelta. In all, 147 wins — a lot more than an ‘OK sprinter’. I wish him a speedy re­cov­ery. Sylvia Bar­bieri

Ob­vi­ously it’ll never hap­pen, but he needs to sign with Quick Step to have a re­al­is­tic shot at Eddy Mer­ckx’s record. Austin Frindt He won four stages at the Tour two years ago, and was well placed to win the stage he crashed out on in 2017. I’m still amazed peo­ple con­tinue to write him off. Dar­ren Mil­lar

What an odd move for a team try­ing to forge its iden­tity, sign­ing a bloke well past his sell by date. Ju­lian Barr

He has a rep­u­ta­tion but not the speed re­quired to match the top sprint­ers now. Nigel Maule Join the con­ver­sa­tion at www.face­­cling­weekly
