Mark Cavendish is expected to hold talks on a new contract for 2022 later this summer after winning two stages of the Tour de France in the opening week.

The 36-year-old Manxman was a late call-up to Deceuninck-QuickStep’s Tour squad after an injury to Sam Bennett but has capitalised in style, taking his first wins in the race since 2016 to move on to 32 Tour stage victories — two behind Eddy Merckx’s all-time record.

Cavendish has enjoyed a return to form with his old team and Deceuninck-QuickStep manager Patrick Lefevere revealed contract talks are planned.

Lefevere said: ‘What if he were to win in the dream scenario on the Champs-Elysees in the green jersey for his 35th Tour victory?

‘Mark has another chance to leave the sport on his terms, but the choice is obviously his.’

Welshman Geraint Thomas’s challenge fell away as defending champion Tadej Pogacar of Slovenia seized the yellow jersey with a solo attack on stage eight from Oyonnax to Le Grand Bor-nand in the Alps, making the Slovenian favourite to retain his title.
