- First win in 2008 riding for Columbia
- Of Cavendish's contemporaries, André Greipel is next on the list with ten wins

Mark Cavendish now sits second in the Tour de France stage winners list with 30 victories. He started winning in 2008 and with the exception of 2014 (crash) and 2015 (just one win) has always won multiple stages in each Tour he has ridden.

His most successful Tour is hard to nail down. He took six wins in 2009, his most, but in 2011 he won the green jersey along with five stages.
