Mark Cavendish wins Tour of California stage 5

Mark Cavendish wins 2015 Tour of California stage 5

The Race: Mark Cavendish is having a terrific 2015 Tour of California. Today he won his third TOC stage out the five ridden so far this year.

It was a miserable, rainy day in Southern California. But that did not dampen the riders' aggression. There was a five-man break, but they were never allowed to gain more than a few minutes.

Near the finish, from the break, BMC rider Danilo Wyss attacked and got a small gap. While that was going on, the other escapees were rounded up. Wyss held off the rampaging, sprinter-fueled pack to about three kilometers remaining. Then he too was caught.

That meant a roughly 50-man sprint, and right now, there is probably no one on the planet who can beat Mark Cavendish in a wheel-to-wheel match up. Cavendish took the stage win while GC leader Toms Skujins was tucked safely in the pack to preserve his overall lead.

Complete Results:

150 km ridden at an average speed of 38.857 km/hr
