  • Mark Cavendish- What time does the 2018 Tour de France start tomorrow what TV channel can I watch it on and what does the stage look like

The Slovak, riding for Bora-Hansgroh, beat Italian Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain-Merida) and France's Arnaud Demare (Groupama-FDJ), who were second and third, respectively, on Sunday.

Froome is aiming to join Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault and Miguel Indurain as the only riders to win the Tour five times.

"I think starting the sprint later was better for me today Démare started with Degenkolb and I overtook them but I was really lucky Colbrelli didn't get the jump on me".

"Revenge? I already forgot about a year ago", Sagan said. The four time world champion showed his intent early after winning the bunch sprint for the intermediate sprint ahead of his main rival Fernando Gaviria (Quick-Step Floors). "It was a good sprint, slightly uphill in the end, but I had good legs and a good feeling", said Gaviria, only the second Colombian to wear the yellow jersey after Victor Hugo Pena in 2003.

Spectators watch as the pack passes along the west coast during the first stage of the Tour de France cycling race over 201 kilometers (124.9 miles) with start in Noirmoutier-en-L'Ile and finish in Fontenay Le-Comte, France, Saturday, July 7, 2018.

Also crashing was Mitchelton-Scott's Adam Yates who quickly recovered with the help of his team-mates to rejoin the peloton.

Sylvain Chavanel (Direct Energie), Dion Smith (Wanty-Groupe Gobert), and Michael Gogl (Trek-Segafredo) set off on a breakaway after the start, but the 39-year-old Chavanel soon shed the other two in his record 18th Tour participation.

A leaked anti-doping test signaling too much salbutamol in his system last September - which anti-doping authorities WADA dismissed last week - has made Froome a target as he and Team Sky in their white jerseys progress along the 21-day Tour route.

That left veteran Chavanel to spend the majority of the day in front. "This is one stage where you have to push to the limit more than ever, but if you misgauge your effort you pay for it massively".

From that point on the sprint trains took over with Marcel Kittel (Katusha-Alpecin) losing touch due to a flat and Mitchelton-Scott's Luke Durbridge suffering a crash.

Froome was the next to go, sent hurtling into a field as the road turned to the left.
