Cav loses green jersey on unlucky 13th stage

Mark Cavendish had a tougher time on Stage 13 of the Tour de France, which saw riders tackle 200 kilometres of mountainous terrain, from Vittel to Colmer.

The five steep climbs weren't to his taste and he finished 118th but, more significantly, he lost the green jersey to Thor Hushovd.

He now trails his Norwegian rival by five points, but the pair are a long way ahead of any other challengers.

German Heinrich Haussler recorded a Tour de Fance maiden victory on Stage 13, but Italian Rinaldo Nocentini continues to lead the overall points classification from Spain's Alberto Contador and Lance Armstrong of the United States.
