Mark Cavendis wins his Fourth Tour stage and moves into second for the Green Jersey Competition

Mark Cavendish of Team Columbia has now won his fourth Stage in the 2008 Tour de France. Now that he has moved into second in the Green Jersey (Points) competition there is good chance that Mr. Cavendish will be pulling his tired body over the Alps.

Not much has happened with the Yellow Jersey (GC) since the rest day. That should change soon. It will be interesting to see how well Christian Vande Velde can do on the up coming mountain climbs.
There was one point in Stage 13 where a Specialized Tarmac SL2 appears to explode. It is just flying above the peloton. I am looking to see if there are any pictures. The TV replay showed the broken bike laying on the ground like a balloon with its air let out. I can only imagine the words that must have come out of the riders mouth as he hit the sign post in the middle of the roadway. I think the same people that design the roads in France work in New Jersey as well.
