TdF 2011 - Stage 16

Mark finished 43rd on today's stage 6:48 down on winner Thor Hushovd, to leave him 124th overall, almost 2hrs exactly down on (still) the current leader, Thomas Voeckler. As ever, the battle for the green jersey is much more important - Mark still has a healthy lead:

  • 1. Mark Cavendish, HTC – Highroad, with 319 points
  • 2. Joaquin Rojas Jose, Movistar Team, with 285 points
  • 3. Philippe Gilbert, Omega Pharma – Lotto, with 250 points
  • 4. Thor Hushovd, Team Garmin – Cervelo, with 235 points
  • 5. AndrĂ© Greipel, Omega Pharma – Lotto, with 170 points
Indeed, HTC Highroad are fairly confident Mark can keep the green jersey all the way to Paris.

Mark had this to say on Twitter: "Wow, fast stage. Tried to stay with the front on final climb but just lost contact. Might shut up some people. Again, great ride by Thor".
