Cavendish leads in Missouri

September 10, 2008


— While Mark Cavendish sprinted Tuesday to his second consecutive win at the Tour of Missouri, the British rider's continued dominance was overshadowed with the confirmation of Lance Armstrong's return to cycling.

Cavendish, who won four stages of the Tour de France in July, claimed his 16th victory this season with about a bike-length victory in the 126.3-mile Clinton-to-Springfield road race in 4 hours, 53 minutes and 19 seconds.

Cavendish holds a 12-second margin over Francesco Chicchi of Italy with five stages in the weeklong race remaining.
