Mark Cavendish bagged his third victory at the Giro d’ Italia 2012, the Manxman wins the 13th stage of the Italian Grand Tour
Reigning UCI World Champion and the stage 2 winner at the ongoing Giro d’ Italia, Mark Cavendish has filled his bag with yet another victory during the 13th stage of the Italian race.
Mark rode brilliantly during the 121 kilometre race and achieved the top podium spot in a fastest time of 3 hours, 2 minutes and 7 seconds.
Alexander Kristoff of Team Katusha followed the Manx professional cyclist throughout the race but had no answers to his peak form.
Kristoff had to settle for the second position as Cavendish bagged his third stage victory at the first Grand Tour race of the season.
Mark Renshaw of Team Rabobank, Sacha Modolo of Team Colnago-CSF and Elia Favilli of Team Farnese Vini-Selle Italia occupied the next three positions in the respective order.
Cavendish was delighted after the stage victory and noted that it is his first good performance since the first week crash.
He briefed, "It's taken me a week to recover from the crash that I had but every day I'm feeling better and better".
"Everything turned out perfectly for me in the finale. The team did a good job, my friends are very committed, but Geraint and the other lack a bit of experience”.
“Give us a little time and our train will be perfect," he concluded.
The 26-year-old is missing the services of his main lead-out man and also one of his best friends, Mark Renshaw.
He mentioned, "I miss him, not only in the race but also because he is a friend. Mark is the best mate you could have and I always have a great feeling when he is around”.
Cavendish secured 29 UCI points after winning the stage 13 and is also leading the point’s classifications.
He has now claimed the red jersey and is determined to continue his dominance in the coming stages of the race.
Joaquim Rodriguez of Team Katusha is leading the stage 13 classifications with a total margin of 17 seconds over Ryder Hesjedal of Team Garmin-Barracuda.
Sandy Casar of Team FDJ-BIG holds the third spot with a total lead of 26 seconds over Rodriguez while Paolo Tiralongo of Team Astana and Ivan Santaromita of Team BMC holds the fourth and the fifth positions in the respective order.
