Mark Cavendish (Astana Qazaqstan) won his 35th stage of the Tour de France in a sprint on Wednesday in Saint-Vulbas. The British sprinter takes the sole lead of the stage winners on the Grande Boucle, ahead of the legend Eddy Merckx (34 wins). Despite several falls that occurred in the afternoon, one of which was narrowly avoided by Tadej Pogacar, none of the contenders for the top 10 in the general classification were held up in the final. No change, therefore, in the top 10 after this fifth stage.
