Almería - Almería, 185.9 km

Mark Cavendish wins 2015 Clasica de Almeria

Mark Cavendish wins again

The Race: A break of four riders, including Romain Sicard and Romain Bardet left the field after the race was about forty kilometers old. But the sprinters' teams were determined to win this race and the break was caught with forty kilometers remaining.

Mark Renshaw gave his Etixx-Quick Step teammate Mark Cavendish a perfect leadout and the on-form Cavendish didn't waste the opportunity. Cavendish won his fourth race of the young 2015 season and the 124th of his professional career.

Last week Cavendish won the Tour of Dubai.
