Tour de France 2008: Mark Cavendish wins fifth stage, Vansevenant hangs in there

Another very exciting stage in the Tour de France! Mark Cavendish (Columbia) won it, with Oscar Freire (Rabobank) and Erik Zabel (Milram) coming in second and third. Stefan Schumacher is the overall Tour leader (with the yellow jersey). A bit of unfortunate news: Mauricio Soler has dropped out of the Tour because of injuries from a fall in second stage.

Meanwhile, the two-time Lanterne Rouge winner, Wim Vansevenant, finished 177th today. He’s hanging in there, doing an excellent job for his team, Silence-Lotto. For more on Vansevenant, go to Nancy Toby’s Lanterne Rouge blog.
