Cavendish Becomes First British Rider in 21 Years to Win Green Jersey in Major Tour

Cav Cements his Place in History Books with Green Jersey Win

Despite not winning yesterdays final stage of the Tour of Spain Mark Cavendish did enough to secure the green jersey, making him the first British rider in 21 years to do so in one of the major events.

He was pipped to the win of the stage by Tyler Farrar, but his second placing meant he gained the points needed to take home the Green Jersey, something that's alluded Cav twice in the Tour de France.

The Tour of Spain is considered one of the hardest of all tours to get the Green Jersey as the winners of mountain and mixed terrain stages receive just as many points as the sprinters.

The achievement is just another in a long line of accomplishments for the Manx missile, who at 25 is still considered to be in the early stages of his career.

Mark is now headed for Australia, where he'll be concentrating on getting ready for the World Championships.
