Tour de France 2012 Stage 18 Results: Mark Cavendish Notches Another Big Win For Team Sky

The 2012 Tour de France is entering its final few days. On Friday, Stage 18 stretched from Blagnac to Brive-la-Gaillarde and saw Team Sky reassert its dominance over the rest of the field. Mark Cavendish pulled away and was able to capture the stage, effectively sealing the win for Sky lead rider Bradley Wiggins.

Only two stages remain in the Tour. Saturday will see a time trial which will likely only see Wiggins and the rest of Team Sky extend their lead heading into Sunday's final ride to the Champs-Elysees.
