Cyclists set to ride the sunshine route

MARK Cavendish returns to action in Andalucia on Sunday hoping for a first British win in the Ruta del Sol.

The Vuelta a Andalucia, nicknamed the Route of the Sun, lasts five days starting in Jaen passing through Cordoba, Malaga, Benahavis and Torrox Costa finishing in Antequera.

Injury means Cavendish, short listed for BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2009, will compete for the first time this year.

Britain’s Olympic gold medallist Bradley Wiggins will also race in the sporting spectacle.

After seven straight Spanish winners the race was won by Dutchman Joost Posthuman last year.
