Manxman Mark Cavendish finished stage three of the Tour of Missouri fifth as Norwegian rival Thor Hushovd took the win and the leader's jersey.

After a day of hard climbs the Norwegian edged out Argentine Juan Jose Haedo in a chaotic sprint finish.

The result sees the Norwegian take over the overall leaders jersey and the sprint jersey from Cavendish.

The 23-year-old Manxman will start the 175.7km fourth stage wearing the Best Young Rider jersey.

Cavendish's Colombia HTC team mate and Australian national time trial champion Michael Rogers is ninth.
