Mark Cavendish is returning to competition at Tirreno-Adriatico. The rider of Dimension Data will race again after the crash that left him out of the Abu Dhabi Tour.

After a hit to the shoulder and a concussion, the Briton had to spend some time off the bike on medical advice but is now ready to come back. Bernhard Eisel, Mark Renshaw, Julien Vermote and Scott Thwaites will be the lead-out men for Cavendish.

"I’m looking forward to getting back together with Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka at Tirreno-Adriatico," the rider commented. "Unfortunately my form isn’t going to be what I’d hoped after my week off the bike following my concussion but we go with intentions of building that form back up, ready for the Classics.

"There are two sprint opportunities for myself and it’ll be nice to race with my new teammate Louis Meintjes and see what we can do with him in the mountain days in the overall."

Like Cavendish mentions, Meintjes will lead the General Classification aspirations of the team while Edvald Boasson Hagen will continue his path to regain his optimal form.

Dimension-Data's line up for Tirreno-Adriatico (7th-13th of March):

Mark Cavendish
Louis Meintjes
Edvald Boasson Hagen
Bernie Eisel
Mark Renshaw
Julien Vermote
Scott Thwaites
