CAVENDISH WINS AGAIN IN MISSOURI

For the second consecutive day, Mark Cavendish was the winner in the Tour of Missouri.

He crossed the line ahead of Sparkasse’s Eric Baumann to win the 126-mile second stage of the American race in Springfield. It means the 23-year-old Team Columbia rider retains the leader’s yellow jersey.

It is Cavendish’s 16th win of the season, and the 27th of his two-year pro career. A couple of weeks ago he won three in a row at the start of the Tour of Ireland.
