MotoGP stars Cal Crutchlow, Fabio Quartararo and Maverick Vinales are to join Tour de France hero Mark Cavendish for a series of live-at-home cycling sessions.

'The Cav Sessions' is part of Monster Energy’s #CrushQuarantine campaign, with athletes around the world showing how they are spending quarantine.

The series will start on Wednesday, May 13th with Crutchlow as the first guest, followed by Quartararo on May 20th and Vinales on May 27th.

“Cav and I are good friends, so I really wanted to get involved in the sessions," Crutchlow said.

"It’s also no secret that I love cycling and I’ve been training a fair bit on the bike since I’ve been at home, so we will enjoy riding again together for some fun.”

"Like everyone else around the world, I’m having to modify my training and make sure I’m staying fit in isolation," added Cavendish.

"I'm looking forward to seeing how the guys fair up against each other on a bike without an engine. I know how competitive Cal, Fabio and Maverick are…”

“These are crazy times we’re all living through and I think it’s important now more than ever to stay connected, so I hope everyone can join us on the rides.”

All sessions will be live at 6pm BST/7pm CEST. Fans will be able to follow via the athlete’s Instagram accounts and Zwift:
