Cavendish to ride through Sunday
Many of the sprinters with no hope of competing for the overall green jersey exit the Tour once it enters the big mountains. This year, that day is tomorrow, as Stage 7 winds up with a climb of the Col de la Colombiére about 15 kilometers/10 miles before the finish at Le Grand-Bornand.
T-Mobile's Tour rookie Mark Cavendish says he's not quite ready to leave the race:
“There's no point in coming here for experience and not doing some Alpine stages,” he told BBC Sport. “I'm going to do the first two mountain stages then pull out on the rest day.”
