A flat dash to Montpellier came as a welcome relief for the yellow jersey contenders on stage 15 of the Tour de France.

It was a day for the sprint teams most notably HTC Highroad and their top fast man Mark Cavendish.

The peloton gobbled up the breakaways and it was time to fly.

No one can catch the Manxman once he kicks for the line and stage 15 was no exception, he has now won four stages in this tour, 19 in all, with more to come.

Monday is a rest day for the riders before the peloton heads back to the mountains for the final chapter of this years tour.

Mark Cavendish wins the stage and moves closer to claiming the green jersey in Paris.

Frenchman Thomas Voeckler remains in yellow and French press are beginning to dream of a home grown winner.
