Sprint stage for Cavendish in Tour de France

Mark Cavendish has the first realistic chance for some days to take another stage of the Tour de France today (15 July). 

After completing the stages in the Pyrenees he can now look forward to a sprint stage to Libourne.

The Manx Missile is currently tied with Eddie Merckx for the all-time record number of Tour stage wins.

After four this year, so far, confidence will be high that the Manxman's Deceuninck-QuickStep team will be able to lead him out to a record breaking 35th stage win.
