Cavendish bags a 16th Tour stage,[url=http://www.chi-flatiron-hairstraighteners@#$%&/]chi flat iron[/url]
Thor Hushovd, of the Garmin Cervelo team,[url=]scarpe hogan[/url], kept the race leader's yellow jersey after the 164.5km ride from Carhaix to Cap Frehel, which saw several overall contenders hit the tarmac.
Reigning champion Alberto Contador (Saxo Bank Sungard), Bradley Wiggins (Sky) and Robert Gesink (Rabobank) all survived crashes to go on and continue their bid for overall victory.
Race doctors also rushed to treat Janez Brajkovic who was involved in the same crash as Gesink, but the RadioShack rider was forced to abandon suffering a heavy concussion and suspected broken collarbone.
Contador,[url=http://www.outletonline-michaelkors@#$%&/]kors outlet[/url], who also crashed on the first stage,[url=http://www.truereligion--outlet@#$%&/]true religion jeans outlet[/url], when he lost over a minute to key rivals, said he is looking forward to things improving over the coming weeks.
"It was a very tense stage with a lot of crashes," said the Spaniard, who crashed alongside Katusha team rider Vladimir Gusev after the halfway point, picking up a shoulder knock.
"Things are not getting any easier. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day."
Cavendish, who claimed 15 stage wins over the previous three Tours, came into the 98th edition knowing there would be only a handful of chances to sprint to victory in the race.
And after coming fifth in the first sprinters' stage on Monday when Tyler Farrar (Garmin Cervelo) prevailed,[url=]@#$%& free[/url], he was determined to silence the detractors he labelled "ignoramuses".
His HTC Highroad team defied the difficult conditions on the coast road leading to Cap Frehel before successfully chasing down a late attack launched by French pair Thomas Voeckler (Europcar) and Jeremy Roy (FDJ),[url=$%&/]beats by dr dre[/url].
Voeckler and Roy went away on a break of their own after, Jose Gutierrez (Movistar), Tristan Valentine (Cofidis), Sebastien Turgot (Europcar) and Anthony Delaplace (Saur Sojasun) opened the hostilities with a breakaway that lead that grew to six minutes before being pulled back by the peloton.
Cavendish then showed he can win without his traditional sprint train, jumping from wheel to wheel before launching a winning drive for the line in the last 150 metres.
"I'm really happy," said Cavendish. "I knew this was a technical finish and it was a hard stage but the team worked really hard for it today and I think I showed my resilience.
"It's always sweet to silence the ignoramuses. I don't want to name names."
Having followed Roy when the FDJ rider pulled away with 33km to race,[url=$%&/]michael kors handbags clearance[/url], Voeckler was caught with 1.8km to go,[url=http://www.raybansunglassesoutleta@#$%&/]raybans@#$%&[/url], paving the way for the sprinters' teams to up the pace ahead of an explosive burst for the line.
HTC Highroad, however, caused confusion when Tony Martin pulled away with 1km to go, prompting Team Sky's Edvald Boasson Hagen into a furious chase.
He was followed by stage one winner Philippe Gilbert (Omega Pharma Lotto), Jose Joaquin Rojas (Movistar) and Hushovd as the sprinters waited to pounce.
Cavendish, who had been sitting on the wheel of team mate Matt Goss, moved out and onto the wheel of Team Sky's Geraint Thomas in the final 250 metres.
Having benefited from Thomas' slipstream,[url=http://www.toryburchoutletshoese@#$%&/]tory burch sandals[/url], Cavendish picked the perfect time to go it alone 150 metres from the finish, where he beat a tiring Gilbert.
Rojas was third ahead of Tony Gallopin (Cofidis), but later lost his green jersey when officials ruled he and Tom Boonen (Quick Step) had blocked Cavendish while battling for the intermediate sprint points.
Cavendish, meanwhile,[url=]toms@#$%&[/url], took his hat off to Gilbert. The Belgian, who earlier this season won all three of the hilly Ardennes Classics, normally excels on difficult uphill finishes.
"That was strong man, I didn't think I was going to beat him," said Cavendish. "Not just today, his performances the whole year are pretty awe inspiring."
