    The young Brit for Team Columbia takes Stage 5. Woot!!!

    American Team. Brit Rider. Nice.

    We aren't to the mountains yet. I have a feeling that Cadel Evans of Australia is biding his time until the tour reaches the mountains, then he will make a move.

    Cavendish outkicks bunch to win his first Tour stage

    Columbia's Mark Cavendish wins his first Tour stage.

    With 10km to go in stage 5 of the Tour de France, Mark Cavendish’s Team Columbia teammates drilled it at the front of the chaotic peloton, burying themselves to set up their British sprint star. With 150 meters to go — and early breakaway rider Nicolas Vogondy of Agritubel still barely clear of the chase — Cavendish lit it up and repaid his teammates with a dominant win ahead of Oscar Freire (Rabobank) and Erik Zabel (Milram).

    Race leader Stefan Schumacher (Gerolsteiner) finished in the bunch to retain the yellow jersey.

    Cavendish, 22, has quickly progressed since turning pro in 2005. In his second Tour, this was his first stage win. It was also a gratifying first Tour stage win of 2008 for Columbia, which had come frustrating close with Kim Kirchen on two occasions.
