• Cavendish squeaks past Sagan to win second stage


    NEVADA CITY: Mark Cavendish won his second straight stage by once again beating out Peter Sagan in a sprint to the finish during the second stage of the Tour of California on Monday (Tuesday in Manila). The race was marred by a huge crash with 10 kilometers (six miles) to go. It sent Ben Jacques-Maynes to the hospital with a dislocated shoulder and cuts on his face. The American has started in every Tour of California which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Cavendish (Etixx) had to work much harder to hold off Sagan [Tinkoff-Saxo] in Monday’s sprint finish than he did in the first stage on when the same pair finished 1-2 on Sunday.
