Team Dimension Data has named their seven-man team to compete in the 298km Milan-San Remo in Italy on Saturday.
Notable inclusions are Cavendish, who fractured a rib when he crashed in stage one of the Tirreno-Adriatico last week, and Renshaw, who abandoned stage five of the same race after falling ill.
Cavendish has since continued training and rejoined the team yesterday.
He would go into the race with the objective of supporting his teammates, Cavendish said.
“After crashing in Tirreno I’m obviously not in any sort of condition to win Milan-San Remo,” he said.
“But having been able to train enough through the pain over the last few days I feel like I can go in support of my teammates.
“Milan-San Remo is a race close to my heart. It’s the type of race that gets my body into rhythm for the year and it will help me compete better in future events.”
