Cavendish will return to Tour of Missouri

Mark Cavendish, the man many cycling experts consider the world's top sprinter, will return to the Tour of Missouri this year.

Cavendish is expected to be accompanied by Team Columbia-HTC teammates Michael Rogers, a three-time world champion, and George Hincapie, who won the inaugural Tour of Missouri two years. Hincapie broke his collarbone during the last week of the Tour de France, and his availability is expected to be announced later this month.

The race begins Sept. 7 in St. Louis and ends Sept. 13 in Kansas City.

This season, Cavendish won six stages of the Tour de France and more than 20 races. Last year, Cavendish became a big Tour of Missouri fan favorite by winning three stages.

Tour of Missouri organizers recognize Cavendish's star power and will include him on several marketing materials, including the official map guide.
