Wiggins & Cavendish set for Danish event

Tour de France winner and Olympic time-trial champion Bradley Wiggins will return to action for Team Sky at this month's Post Danmark Rundt.

Wiggins will be joined in the team by Mark Cavendish, who suffered Olympic road race disappointment just days after rounding off his own Tour de France with his 23rd stage win in cycling's blue-riband event.

The 27-year-old's future with Team Sky is uncertain after team principal Dave Brailsford admitted he would allow the sprinter to move on if Cavendish felt the team's general classification aspirations affected his chances of stage victories.

Geraint Thomas and Peter Kennaugh are also in the eight-man team for the Danish event which begins on August 22, following their stunning team pursuit victory at the Olympics.
