Mark Cavendish on podium, Tour de France 2011, stage 16

Mark Cavendish's chances of winning the Tour de France's green jersey are good, according to HTC-Highroad's Valerio Piva. He stopped his rivals from gaining valuable points today and faces only five more days until the finish in Paris.

"The chance is good he can keep the jersey to Paris," HTC's sports director, Piva told Cycling Weekly. "The next days are for climbers and the sprints are before the climbs, so Mark can get the points. And Paris is, of course, for Mark."
