2010 Tour de France – Stage 5

Mark Cavendish is somewhat back on track as he has won the 5th stage of the Tour de France. After what looked to be a disastrous start to the season and the Tour, Cavendish has finally captured a stage win in a grand event this year after being chosen to race California and missing the Giro. Mark stated at the outset of the season that his number one objective was to win the Green jersey at the TdF, deflecting much of his recent criticism by quickly pointing out when he planned to ‘peak’ and what his main goals were. Well, Cavendish entered today’s stage with a massive point deficit to Thor Hushovd and Alessandro Petacchi, the former of who currently wears the green jersey. Cavendish picked up maximum final sprint points today, but he’s certainly got his work cut out for him if he wants to pull on the green jersey in Paris which at this point seems highly unlikely.
