Cavendish wins 11th stage of Tour de France

Mark Cavendish of Britain has won a rainy 11th stage of the Tour de France in a mass sprint, easily beating Andre Greipel of Germany on the line.
French rider Thomas Voeckler kept the race leader's yellow jersey after the 167.5 kilometer (104.1-mile) trek from Blaye-les-Mines to Lavaur.
It was Cavendish's 18th stage win on the Tour de France, his third in this year's race.
Thursday's 12th stage takes the riders on the first of a three-day trek across the Pyrenees with a punishing 211-kilometer (131-mile) trek over the legendary col du Tourmalet and finishing on top of Luz-Ardiden.
