Cavendish wins first Tour de France stage in five years

A last-gasp addition to his team, Mark Cavendish rolled back the years as he claimed his 31st Tour de France stage victory on Tuesday – five years after his last success on the world’s greatest cycling race.

The Briton, who finished outside the time limit in his previous participation in 2018, crashed out in 2017 and hinted at retirement last year.

He is now three victories away from the Tour’s all-time stage win record held by Belgian great Eddy Merckx.
