Cavendish wins in unusual way

Mark Cavendish of High Road has added another win to his successful spring campaign. The Britain won the Profronde van Made on Sunday. It is not the fact that he won the omnium consisting of a 60-minute criterium, a 30-minute time trial, and a 20-minute elimination race. Cavendish and Juan Antonio Flecha (Rabobank) won the first two events – but surprisingly not in that order. Cavendish proved fastest against the clock, while Flecha won the criterium. Flecha's team-mate Sebastian Langeveld was the last survivor in the elimination race.

Through the win in the time trial Cavendish also took the overall title. Flecha ended in second, while Slipstream's Martyn Maaskant took third.
