Mark Cavendish wins Giro d'Italia points classification

Jersey winners, Giro d'Italia 2013, stage 21

Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) completed his set at the Giro d'Italia today in Brescia, winning a points jersey in all three Grand Tours. His team and climbing legs, says sports director Brian Holm, made it possible.

"It's an honour to take the red jersey," Holm told Cycling Weekly. "Even without the one from the Vuelta a España or from the Tour de France, it'd still be an honour for him to have the points jersey in the Giro."
