MARK Cavendish clinched an impressive victory in a sprint finish to the third stage of the Tour of Britain today.
Having missed out in the final charge to the line yesterday, the man they call the Manx Missile had time for his trademark celebration as he crossed the line in Dumfries this afternoon.
