Mark Cavendish reminded the world of his supreme sprinting skills with a perfectly executed win ahead of Matt Goss in stage 18 of the Tour de France. Team Sky's world champion surged down the closing straight in Brive-la-Gaillarde to win the 222.5km stage ahead of Matt Goss (Orica-GreenEdge) and the green jersey Peter Sagan (Liquigas). After his second stage win of an otherwise quiet race, Cavendish embraced team-mate Bradley Wiggins, the yellow jersey, who comfortably finished in the pack to preserve his lead in the general classification ahead of Saturday's final time trial to Chartres. Wiggins leads another Briton, Chris Froome, in the overall standings by two minutes and five seconds in a Tour which has underlined Team Sky's status as the best all-round squad in professional cycling.
