Cav out to Secure First Major Jersey

It's a big week for Manx cyclist Mark Cavendish.

With four stages to go at the Tour of Spain, the Manx Missile has an 18 point advantage in the Green Jersey classification.

Today sees a pan flat route with the remaining three stages offering one more, possibly two
opportunities for a sprint finish.

Cav has won two stages at his first attempt at the Tour of Spain and has now secured 22 grand tour stages in France, Italy and Spain since turning professional in 2007.

However, he has yet to win a major jersey at one of the three premier events in Cycling.
