CAP FREHEL, France (AP) - Mark Cavendish of Britain has won a windy and crash-marred fifth stage of the Tour de France in a mass sprint and Thor Hushovd of Norway kept the overall race lead.
Defending champion Alberto Contador fell in one pileup and Radio Shack rider Janez Brajkovic quit the race after another in the 102-mile ride from Carhaix to Cap Frehel on Wednesday.
