Tour de France 2011 Live, Stage 11 Results: Mark Cavendish Gets 18th Career Tour Stage Win

Another day, another great ride by the Manx Missle. Tuesday, on Stage 10, Mark Cavendish finished in second place as he was foiled by German Andre Greipel, but Cavendish got him back on Wednesday, beating him to the line to grab the victory in Stage 11, the 18th stage victory of Cavendish's career. Greipel finished second, while Tyler Farrar finished third.

Phillipe Gilbert did not finish in the top 10 in the race, and as a result has lost his green jersey to Cavendish, who now sits 20 points ahead of the Belgian champion. Jose Joaqun Rojas finished in seventh place in the sprint, keeping him very much in contention for green. This is the first time since 2009 that Cavendish has worn the green jersey.

The three other jerseys will all stay with their previous owners. Robert Gessink stays in white, the badly injured Johnny Hoogerland is still on the road, keeping his polka-dots and Thomas Voeckler remains in yellow.
