Two out of two for Cav

Mark Cavendish has made it two stage wins out of two at the Tour of Ireland after winning today's 158km Thurles to Loughrea stage.

He crossed the line in a bunch sprint ahead of Rabobank's Michael van Staeyen.

The win means Cav retains the yellow jersey and he's extended his lead over Kiwi rider Julian Dean to 13 seconds in the process.

He also leads the points and young rider classifications.

Tomorrow's third stage sees the riders tackle the 201km ride from Ballinrobe to Galway.
