British cyclist Mark Cavendish is in Cape Town to train with Team Dimension Data, who he signed up with last September.

Cavendish won the first stage of this year’s Tour de France in a sprint finish at Utah beach after putting on the yellow jersey for the first time.

Speaking to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies, Cavendish expressed his excitement to be in South Africa and being part of a team that he says is relaxed.

He says he his proud of the work they do in giving bicycles to underprivileged children in Africa.

Its a big factor for me to sign up for the team. We have another handover on Thursday and last year it was great to see the children getting the bikes and the enjoyment they get from that. To witness it first hand does something to you and you cant help but be proud.
