Cav A Nice Day: How Many Wins For The Manx Missile?
Mark Cavendish grabbed his first win of this year's Tour de France and bookmakers, William Hill, think there is more to come, offering 6/4 that he bags three this year and 4/1 that he gets four or more.
He is 17/10 to get no more wins this year. Cavendish is 11/5 favourite to win the Green Jersey.
"The Manx missile came from nowhere to win today's stage and despite slipping down the peloton with 8k to go, never went any longer than 11/10 in play such is the strength of his finish," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "It is now a case of how many stages he will win."
Today's stage also saw two retirements during the race and Hills are also betting on how many riders withdraw DURING tomorrow's stage. It is odds on for no retirements, at 4/5, although one is offered at 2/1.
