Cavendish wears green jersey into sixth stage

Ends where the Manx Missile got his first win in 2008

Mark Cavendish will start the sixth stage of the Tour de France today (Thursday, 1 July) wearing the green jersey of the points leader.

The flat stage ends in Chateauroux where Cavendish won his first ever tour stage in 2008.

Yesterday the Manx Missile finished some two minutes down on the winner's time in the time trial - a discipline he was not expected to do well in.

On Monday Cavendish won the fourth stage, his 31st stage win overall, in the three week event which ends in Paris.
