Canny Cavendish triumphs at stage six

BRITISH rider Mark Cavendish hailed his Omega Pharma Quick-Step team-mates for helping him secure victory in the sixth stage of the Giro D’Italia. The 27-year-old said: “It’s beautiful. There are all those bits of the engine that fit together. I’m just the exhaust, the thing that makes most noise.” Meanwhile, Sir Bradley Wiggins retained sixth place overall.
