Must Win Stage For Mark Cavendish Today in the Tour De France

Cav Needs Win to Keep Green Jersey Dream Alive

It’s the last throw of the dice today for Mark Cavendish with anything but a win seriously denting his Green Jersey campaign.

Cav has had a mixed Tour, after a disastrous start to the Tour things started to pick up again with a hat-trick of impressive victories.

The wins catapulted him back up the Green Jersey leader board into third place behind Thor Hushovd and Alessandro Petacchi.

There’s currently a 29-point deficit for him to over-turn, a tall order but it’s not impossible.

It’s thought that he will struggle without HTC-Columbia teammate Mark Renshaw who was disqualified for trying to head butt another rider metres from the finish line.

Today’s 198km stage will climax with a sprint finish in Bordeaux.
