Cavendish and Cancellara before the start.
Columbia played this stage to perfection. They split the peloton with 30 km to go. Here Cavendish (green) and Hushovd (white) have a drag race for the line.
Hushovd can't get by the speedy Columbia rider.
So it's 2 in a row for Cavendish.
Cancellara is between Cavendish and Hushovd. He looks a bit gassed after the sprint. That was good heads up riding by both Cancellara and Armstrong who made the split.
