Last stage before the mountains

There's another chance for a stage win for Mark Cavendish in the Tour de France today (Friday).

The 210 kilometre run from Le Mans to Chateauroux is the last section of the tour with no climbs before it heads for the mountains.

Chateauroux was where the 'Manx Missile' had his first stage win in the event, in 2008.

Cavendish recorded his first stage win of this year's event in Brittany on Wednesday, and moved into the all-time top ten of Tour de France stage winners.
