Tour de France 2021 today, stage 10: profile and route

After salvaging the runaway at Tignes, Mark Cavendish is aiming for his third Tour victory today, one of Eddy Merckx's all-time record.


Mark Cavendish leads the classification of the green jersey with 168 points, by Michael Matthews 130, Sonny Colbrelli 121 and Jasper Philipsen 102, his immediate pursuers. The Briton was saved from the out of control in Tignes and also three rivals in the volatas went home: Tim Merlier, devastated by the cold, and Arnaud Démare and Bryan Coquard, who did not exceed the time cutoff. Today's day between Albertville and Valence will become a good opportunity for the Deceuninck sprinter to continue his work of pressure on Eddy Merckx's all-time record: 34 wins to 32.

For Cavendish, crossing the finish line high in Tignes within the limit meant "as much or more than a triumph": "It was the confirmation that I am back in the game, with important goals to accomplish, such as fighting for the green jersey and look for more successes in the massive arrivals that we have yet to contest. In addition, we saw the incredible team spirit of the Wolfpack (The Pack), how Declercq and Morkov sacrificed themselves to keep him alive on the Tour. " Bouhanni, Philipsen, Matthews, Colbrelli or Bol will try to prevent him from raising his arms for a third time in this edition.
