Mark Cavendish could be set for even more success in 2009, according to Isle of Man team manager Gary Hinds.

Cavendish, 23, has had a hugely successful 2008, including winning four stages of the Tour de France.

"Next year the profile of the Tour de France suits Mark much better than this year, there are eight completely flat stages," said Hinds.

"The Green Jersey is well within his grasp. If he continues to improve, who knows what he can achieve."
