It was only a matter of time. Mark Cavendish won yet another Tour de France stage today, but also managed to pull on the yellow leader’s jersey for the first time in his career.

He did it, of course, aboard his team issue Cervelo S5 aero road bike. The Manxman used a set of deep section Enve SES wheels rolling on Chris King hubs.

His Dura-Ace Di2 group shifted 54/39 chainrings and an 11-28 cassette, giving him all the top gear he needed to beat Marcel Kittel and Peter Sagan to the line.
