The Chief Minister has expressed the pride of the Manx nation for Mark Cavendish despite his disappointment in Saturday's Olympic Cycling road race.

The Manxman was tipped for gold in the gruelling and tactical 156 mile event, but Team GB was unable to set Cav up for a sprint finish.

It looked as though Manx people had turned out in their dozens to support Cavendish on the day, with Manx flags clearly visible all the way along the course.

Allan Bell said on behalf of the people on the Island he wants to state how proud we are of Mark’s performance.

Mr Bell points out that Cav is still Britain’s most successful cyclist of all-time and a real hero in the Isle of Man.
