Mark Cavendish
Cavendish stormed to the 20th grand tour stage win of his career

Isle of Man rider Mark Cavendish won the 12th stage of the Tour of Spain to complete a memorable feat of individual stage wins at all three grand tours.

Glasgow-born climber Robert Millar, who won stages at the Giro d'Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana in the 1980s, is the only Briton to match him.

Second behind HTC-Columbia rider Cavendish was American Tyler Farrar, with Australia's Matt Goss third.

Euskaltel-Euskadi's rider Igor Anton of Spain kept the overall lead.

The victory in the 172.5km ride from the tiny principality of Andorra in the Pyrenees mountains to Lleida in north-eastern Spain was Cavendish's 20th grand tour stage win overall.
