Cavendish adds to impressive Tour de France for Sky

Mark Cavendish, Tour de France 2012, stage two

Sky added to what has already been an impressive 2012 Tour de France by winning stage 18 on Friday with Mark Cavendish. Bradley Wiggins, wearing the race leader's yellow jersey, led the World Champion through the final bends into Brive-la-Gaillarde and punched the air in celebration when he crossed the line.

"We don't want to be greedy, but we are here to perform and we are delivering," sports director, Sean Yates explained. "There were still a number of stages where we could've chased the breakaway and had a chance of wins, but we haven't done that. We've done everything we can to protect the jersey."
