Cavendish secures first points

Mark Cavendish has his first points on the board in the 2012 Tour de France.

The ‘Manx Missile’, the holder of the green jersey, contested the intermediate sprint yesterday (Sunday) but was outsprinted by former HTC team-mate Matt Goss and had to settle for eight points.

Fabian Cancellara was second and remains the overall race leader ahead of today’s leg - a 208 kilometre trip from Vise to Tournai.
