Cavendish said that he is a sprinter and his goal is to win stages. He said, “I'm disappointed not to win it this year, I set it as my target. I had some bad luck in the first week and I was the weak link of the team, but I've won five stages so I'll be happy with this year's Tour”.

It is noteworthy that just 11 men in the history of Tour have won more stages, than Manx Missile.
