After falling ill with the Epstein-Barr virus back in December and not being able to attend his team’s training camp, Australian Mark Renshaw is almost completely healed and will begin training again this week. “He will be ready for California, the Tour and the worlds. The most dangerous thing right now is that he would come back too early,” said Rolf Aldag. “We want him to take his time and we are trying to calm him down. He was super-frustrated that he could not come to camp, but he knows he doesn’t have to qualify for anything. His position on the team is secure. It’s not worth it for him to hurry back to race something like Tour of Qatar. That only risks him becoming ill again,” he adds. Renshaw will be ready just in time to support his teammate, Mark Cavendish. Cavendish says that Renshaw is “the best lead-out man in the world.” Expect to see the duo doing big things this season.
