Cav takes control in battle for green jersey

Mark Cavendish made it four stage wins at the 2011 Tour de France at Montpellier today (Sunday).

The 'Manx Missile' beat his main rivals in the sprint for the line at the end of a 120 mile ride from Limoux, and is now a commanding 37 points clear in the battle for his first green jersey.

It was his 19th stage win overall, in four years at the world's biggest cycling event.

Cav described it as 'a difficult, technical finish', in windy conditions which reminded him of the Isle of Man.

The Tour de France ends in Paris on July 24.
