Riding for the Team ToB12
Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) may have been dropped on the second climb of the day, but he used his faithful teammate Bernhard Eisel to bridge back to the peloton ahead of the final climb of the day. It was Cav who went to the front as the peloton started up the aptly named The Struggle and drove the pace another teammate, Steve Cummings. Cummings normally hangs out at the back of the peloton, so you know when he is on the front, he as something up his arm warmer. Sorry couldn't resist the joke.
