Tour de France – Stage 15 – Four for Cav.

Mark Cavendish has won his fourth stage of the Tour de France. Is there a tour when Mark isn’t going to win five stages? It really does illustrate both the dominance of the HTC train as well as the unmatchable finishing speed of Cavendish. You may not like Cav, but you gotta have respect for his consistency.

The day as predicted was windy and tough but no changes in to GC top ten as the favorites crossed the line unscathed. Tomorrow is the second rest day and then we head into the Alps, to find out who’s really got what is takes to wear the yellow jersey. Today, I think we found out who’s going to be wearing Green.
