Cavendish loses ground on Gilbert

It’s another day in the mountains at the Tour de France on Sunday.

The ninth stage will take on the up-and-down route between Issoire and Saint-Flour.

Today (Saturday), Manxman Mark Cavendish was nearly 20 minutes behind the winner, Portugal's Rui da Costa, who held off a late dash from Belgian Phillipe Gilbert.

Cavendish is 113th overall and remains third in the battle for the sprinters’ green jersey but fell further behind points leader Gilbert.
