Pile-up ends Cav's stage 2 chances

There was more disappointment for Manx Tour de France cyclist Mark Cavendish yesterday (Monday), after he crashed out of contention again.

On Sunday he collided with a spectator; this time a rider moving across the bunch with only 2 kilometres to go caused a mass pile-up as the race moved from Dunkirk to Ghent in Belgium.

The 22 year was being led to the front by three T-Mobile team-mates, and he fell to the right suffering grazes to his elbows and knees.

Mark is expected to continue when the race goes into France today with a finish in Compiegne, 50 miles north of Paris.
