British sprinter Mark Cavendish won the sprint this Friday in the thirteenth stage of the Tour de France, ending in Carcassonne, and equals the record of 34 partial victories in the Grande Boucle of Belgian cycling legend Eddy Merckx. The Slovenian Tadej Pogacar kept the race leader’s yellow jersey without problems, on a day that had no consequences for the general classification.
