Mark Cavendish may join Bahrain-merida
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.facebook.com/cyclingweekly
