Mark Cavendish MBE signs for talkSPORT

Champion cyclist Mark Cavendish MBE will give talkSPORT his thoughts on this year’s Tour de France via a series of audio guides.

The Manx Missile, who has won 23 Tour de France stages and the 2011 BBC Sports Personality of the Year, will host the guides for the station broadcast throughout the world’s most famous road cycling race.

In addition, he’s has given an exclusive interview to talkSPORT’s Danny Kelly about his life and career. The content will be broadcast in the run up to, and during, the 2013 Tour De France which starts on Saturday 29 June.

Liam Fisher, Programme Director, talkSPORT said: “talkSPORT always attracts the very biggest names in sport. Mark’s always been an excellent interviewee when he’s appeared on talkSPORT shows and these guides and interviews will give our listeners access to unrivalled understanding of the Tour de France.

The Tour is an event that always captures the imagination of sports fans and with Mark on board with talkSPORT we’ll be covering this year’s event both on-air and online in more depth than ever.”
