Cavendish: 'Today brought back memories of San Remo'

Mark Cavendish Giro 2009 stage 11

Mark Cavendish had not marked down stage 11 to Arenzano as one of the three he was targeting this year but when the gruppo controlled the breaks and Cavendish comfortably got over the Turchino climb, he and his Columbia team automatically slipped into sprint formation and took home yet another win.

The sprint was scrappy behind Cavendish but he was kept out of trouble and got a perfect lead out from Edvald Boasson Hagen and Mark Renshaw.
