Cavendish Goes Back-To-Back Wins, Avoids Cyclist Fight...

Mark Cavendish made it back-to-back stage victories leading another sprint for the line as the contenders finished in the peloton close behind.

The HTC Columbia rider earned his 12th career Tour stage victory on the 141.3-mile sixth stage from Montargis to Gueugnon- clocking in at 5 hours, 37 minutes, 42 seconds to edge Tyler Farrar of the United States and Alessandro Petacchi of Italy.

The main title contenders had the same time as Cavendish. Defending champion Alberto Contador was 28th, seven-time champion Lance Armstrong was 38th, and overall race leader Fabian Cancellara was 41st.

Here's the biker fight... actually, they're not on hogs...
It's a cyclist fight... very European right-hands, though... it's more of a pounding.
