Cavendish made history in this year's Tour de France, winning four stages
Mark Cavendish says he will go all out to win the green points jersey at next year's Tour de France.
The 23-year-old 'Manx Express' was in Paris for the announcement of the 2009 route on Wednesday and was more than happy with it.
The 2009 race, which starts in Monaco on 4 July, looks better for sprinters, with seven stages likely to be bunch finishes in the first fortnight.
He told the Guardian: "Next year I'll be going full-on for the green jersey."
In order to claim the overall sprint prize, Cavendish will need to finish the three-week test of endurance.
The final week is very hilly, with the penultimate stage finishing at the summit of Mont Ventoux.
Cavendish won four stages in this year's race.
