Mark Cavendish is the clear favourite to take the sprinters Green Jersey in the 2010 Tour de France. Cavendish started the season with two main aims in 2010, the Tour de France Points Jersey and the Worl Championships in September. Despite having, by his own high standards, a relatively troubled season so far few doubt he will be ready to take on Thor Hushovd over three weeks around France.
Hushovd, the 2009 Points winner, has himself had an injury disrupted season and goes into the 2010 race with question marks over his fitness. The bookmakers offer both Hushovd and Tyler Farrar at the same odds and it could be the American that springs the surprise for the Green Jersey. Outside of the Top 3, Edvald Boassen Hagen could spring a surprise and is likely to be Team Sky’s best chance of an overall jersey.
