Cav Wins Three

stage 10 gapThe peloton chased down a four-man break in the last mile of Stage 10 giving Britain’s Mark Cavendish another chance at a field sprint. With a textbook lead-out from his Columbia HTC teammate, Cav won the day, his third stage win in this year’s Tour. Norway’s Thor Hushovd finished on Cav’s wheel for second place and enough points to hold onto the green jersey. Garmin Slipstream’s Tyler Farrar of the U.S. finished third. Tour watchers expected Cav to win the 121-mile race from Limoges to Issoudun. “My focus is on the stage wins. I’d like to get to Paris and hopefully a green jersey will come,” said Cavendish.

There was a lot of anticipation about today’s race radio ban and how that would impact the riders. Apparently, it didn’t. Radios are also banned in Stage 18.
