Cav out-sprints rivals for win
Mark Cavendish won stage four of the Tour of Britain on Wednesday, with fellow Briton Sir Bradley Wiggins remaining top of the general classification.
The Omega Pharma-Quickstep rider triumphed in a bunch sprint at the end of a challenging day that took the race from Stoke-on-Trent to Llanberis.
An 11-strong breakaway had operated out on its own for most of the day but was reeled in with just one kilometre remaining in the Snowdonia National Park.
That brought Manxman Cavendish into his own and he was able to see off the challenge of stage one winner Elia Viviani (Cannondale) and Steele Van Hoff (Garmin Sharp).
Wiggins, who powered his way to the gold jersey with a dominant performance in the stage three time-trial, finished in the peloton to stay in front with four stages to go.
