Manx Missile now one behind Merckx record
Mark Cavendish has won yet another stage of the Tour de France after a perfect leadout by his team, Deceurninck Quickstep.
It put him just one stage win away from the record set by Eddie Merckx of 34 stage wins and follows two stage wins already last week.
He has two further opportunities to add to his tally this week, with two flat stages.
