Cavendish bags his third stage win but his lead-out man is kicked out of the race

Mark Cavendish wins, Tour de France 2010, stage 11

Mark Cavendish won his third stage of the Tour de France in decisive style but it was an ill-disciplined sprint, with his lead-out man Mark Renshaw nudging his head at Garmin's Julian Dean three times before shutting the door on Tyler Farrar.
