Giro d'Italia Stage 3
Then yesterday the man who is second in the race helped the world champion to yet another win here in Denmark, the country where Cavendish won the rainbow strips. The two of them were well up at the front, riding fifth and sixth wheels, ahead of a crash going into the finishing straight that caused a split in the peleton but because of the last km rule, no lose of time. Thomas himself wearing the red jersey for points leader finished 11th, before relinquishing his temporary custodianship of the points jersey to the man he hopes will still be wearing it in Milan.
Today we head to the east coast of the Danish mainland for a figure of eight circuit around the city of Horsens before three criterium loops around the city itself potentially setting up another sprint finish that Sky will want to consolidate they very good weekend in Denmark.
Thomas because of his 2nd and 11th place finishes is actually second in the point classification at the moment.
The question already being asked by La Gazzetta dello Sport is can any other sprinter deny Cavendish.
