"It's like my first one" | Mark Cavendish equals Tour de France stage record


Share this article


Mark Cavendish has won stage 13 of the Tour de France to match Eddy Merckx's record of 34 Tour stage victories.

He held off Michael Morkov in second to claim his fourth win of this year's race.

"I haven't realised it, it's still just another win on the Tour de France," Cavendish said after his landmark victory.

"It's like my first one. I've won a stage of the Tour de France. It's what I dreamed of as a kid and it's what I dream of now."

"I've worked so hard for it. We've seen such a growth, especially in the UK, of cycling since I've started racing here at the Tour de France.

"If any one of my wins can inspire the kids to ride the Tour de France or the Tour de France Femmes from next year when they grow up, that's what means the most to me I think."

Defending champion Tadej Pogacar remains in the leader's yellow jersey into stage 14 while Ireland's Dan Martin is 68th overall.
