Britain's Mark Cavendish recorded the 12th win of his Tour de France career on Friday with victory on stage six.

Friday saw the longest stage of the 2010 Tour de France, a 227.5-kilometre trek from Montargis to Gueugnon, with 188 riders at the start.

Mathieu Perget jumped ahead in the first kilometre and was joined by Sebastian Lang and Ruben Perez Moreno and the peloton happily waved them goodbye and allowed them to build a significant advantage. But with five kilometres to go, the escape was over.

In the end, Briton's Mark Cavendish made it two successive Tour de France stage victories, leading a sprint for the line as the main title contenders finished in a closely trailing pack. The 25-year-old earned his 12th career Tour stage victory and fifth in all races this year - clocking five hours, 37 minutes, 42 seconds.

The general classification standings remained unchanged for a third day in a row, with Fabian Cancellara still in possession of the yellow jersey.
