British cycling champ Mark Cavendish’s TWO-YEAR-OLD son rides a motorbike round the garden as star is ‘blown away’ by toddler’s skill

When his dad is a British cycling legend, perhaps it’s not surprising that young Casper Cavendish looks so confident on two wheels.

But as he’s aged just two, even his father, Tour de France veteran Mark Cavendish, known as the ‘Manx Missile’, admitted being ‘blown away’ by the toddler’s skill on a miniature electric motorbike.

Cavendish’s Instagram video post captioned ‘My Baby Fell in Love With A… Motorbike’, showing Casper smoothly zooming around the family’s back garden with big sister Delilah, eight, received more than 10,000 likes.

The 35-year-old cycling champ joked that his children have ‘Manx blood’ – a reference to the world-famous Isle of Man TT motorbike race held on the island, though cancelled last year and this because of Covid.

He added: ‘This got a lot of [heart sign] on my stories, so here’s a bit more. There’s no denying these 2 have Manx blood. Delilah is 8, but Casper getting on his @osetbikes at 2 years old has just blown me away. 2 wheel life!’

Mark’s wife, former glamour model Peta Todd, 34, also proudly posted a photo of her son riding a conventional bicycle on Boxing Day without stabilisers, to the amazement of her Instagram followers.

The Cavendishes are spending the lockdown at their home on the Isle of Man.

The battery-powered OSET Bikes are the brainchild of British entrepreneur Ian Smith and the model Casper is riding, believed to be the OSET 12.5 Racing, costs £1,149 and is aimed at riders aged three to five.

Isle of Man-born Cavendish has won many of the world’s top cycling trophies on track and road, including Gold in the Commonwealth Games and Silver in the 2016 Olympics.

Cavendish has won thirty Tour de France stages, putting him second on the all-time list, contributing to a joint third highest total of forty-eight Grant Tour stage victories.

He won the road race at the 2011 World Championships, becoming only the second British rider to do so.
