Cavendish recovering well after crash

Mark Cavendish says he is recovering well after having surgery on the injured shoulder that forced him to pull out of the Tour de France.

The British rider

dislocated his shoulder and damaged ligaments

in a crash during the sprint finish on the opening stage of the Tour in Harrogate.

His recovery is expected to take around six weeks, which means he is likely to

miss this year’s Commonwealth Games.

“Just had my first physio session,”

the 29-year-old said on Twitter.
