Cav loses leader's jersey

 

He's worn it for two days, but Mark Cavendish relinquished the Maglia Azzurra, the leader's jersey, at the Tirreno Adriatico on Friday.

Now heading the general classification is Cavendish's Omega Pharma - Quick-Step teammate Michal Kwiatkowski, with fellow OPQS rider Rigoberto Uran second.

Today's stage was won by Cannondale's Slovakian all-rounder Peter Sagan.

Peter Kennaugh played his part in Team Sky's effort to get Richie Porte into a decent finishing position and he duly obliged, coming home six seconds behind the leaders.

The tour heads into the mountains on Saturday for a finish more than 1500 metres above sea level.
