Hat-trick win for Cavendish

BRITAIN’S Mark Cavendish sprinted to a third stage win out of four at the Tour of Turkey yesterday.

The Omega Pharma Quick Step rider stormed away from Maximiliano Richeze and team-mate Mark Renshaw in the final 100m to cross the line in three hours 14 minutes 23 seconds.

Cavendish, however, could not regain the overall lead from Estonia’s Rein Maaramae. Britain’s Adam Yates remains second, six seconds off the pace.
