Cavendish too quick for Schleck brothers in Stiphout

Mark Cavendish (HTC-Highroad) added the Profronde van Stiphout to his name on Tuesday. The British super sprinter was too fast for Luxembourg's Andy and Frank Schleck who had to settle for the minor positions.

The three riders joined, Ivan Basso, Laurens Ten Dam, Johnny Hoogerland and Thomas Dekker among others at the start in Stiphout.

Bauke Mollema finished fourth, while Pim Ligthart of the Vacansoleil DCM team won the sprint of the chasing group.
