Stephen Park, Performance Director for British Cycling, said: “What a fantastic achievement by Mark Cavendish to win his 34th stage of the Tour de France, equalling the record set by the legendary Eddy Merckx.

“It is testament to not only Mark’s sporting ability, but to his tenacity and resilience, all of which play a part in his success.

“The Great Britain Cycling Team has a well-established pathway programme with a history of producing cycling greats, of which Mark is a proud graduate. Our pathway team are committed to laying the groundwork for cyclists in the early stages of their development and equipping them with the skills they need both on and off the bike. We have seen Mark show real pride in the Great Britain Cycling Team jersey as well as excelling in the most prestigious of the Grand Tours, and he continues to serve as an inspiration to those riders who dream of emulating his success.

“On behalf of everyone on the Great Britain Cycling Team, I would like to congratulate Mark on this latest milestone achievement and wish him the very best of luck for the rest of Le Tour.”
