Mark Cavendish won his 26th Tour de France stage Friday as he inched closer to Eddy Merckx's overall record.The Belgian great is still well clear out in front with 34 but his fellow five-time Tour winner Bernard Hinault is only two stages ahead of Cavendish now. Greipel had won the first two sprint finishes in which Cavendish could manage only fourth and third, but the Manx Missile found a gap down the inside of the burly German as Peter Sagan went around the outside to win by a half bike's length.While Cavendish, who crashed out of the first stage in last year's race with a separated shoulder, ended his two-year wait for a stage win, Sagan's own drought goes on.He now has five top three finishes this year and 18 top five results – including eight second places – since his last win on stage seven in 2013 .
