He finished fifth in yesterday's stage suffering a rare defeat in a sprint finish.

Cav's tumble on Wednesday left him covered in cuts and bruises and with an injured finger, but he still a strong favourite for yesterday's race which was particularly suited to sprinters.

It was the Manxman's sprint rival Andre Griepel from Germany who crossed the line first.
