Mark Cavendish: "I found myself in a good situation for the points classification"

"It wasn’t planned for me to go on the break. I just got this kind of feeling of my gut and decided I had to go at that moment, that I had to try and bridge across to the break that was in the making. Next thing I knew, I was away. I had a quick look around and saw that there weren’t competitors for the green jersey and that there were quite a few teams with many riders to pull. It was a good situation for me, points classification-wise. Also, thanks to being on the break I got some buffer for the climbs and was able to ride my own tempo in the final 50 kilometres."
