Volta ao Algarve: Mark Cavendish sprints back to winning ways
Brit wins stage five
Monday 24 February 2014
Mark Cavendish sprinted to his first win of the season on stage five of the Volta ao Algarve on Sunday as his Omega Pharma-Quick Step team-mate Michal Kwiatkowski completed overall victory.
Cavendish’s stage win, which he took by half a wheel ahead of France’s Arnaud Demare, was his first since he took the final stage of the Tour of Britain last year.
Chris Froome, Team Sky’s 2013 Tour de France winner, finished safely in the peleton in the Tour of Oman to take the race for a second successive year. Germany’s Andre Greipel won the final stage sprint.
