Mark Cavendish avoided a late crash to win a third consecutive stage at the Tour of Turkey on Wednesday
to remain in the overall lead of the eight day event. Nearly a dozen riders went down just behind Cavendish to block the road. Some riders required medical attention and were transported to the hospital. The 35-year-old Cavendish hadn’t won a race since 2018 before Monday but was celebrating a third victory in three days after the 184.4km run from Alanya to the coastal town of Kemer.
