To everyone's relief, especially his, Mark Cavendish finally opened his account in the 2010 Tour with a convincing sprint win, besting rivals Thor Hushovd, Alessandro Petacchi, Robbie McEwen, and Tyler Farrar. It was noticeable that HTC waited longer to get their "train" rolling today, and Mark Renshaw had the perfect lead-out setting up the win.
Is Mark back? Will the confidence from this win carry him to others, or will his rivals come back and best him while fighting over the green jersey? Tomorrow will tell, as we have another flat stage...
