Greipel added: "He (Cavendish) is probably the best sprinter on the Tour de France, so to beat him is pretty special. We're big rivals, and I hope we get a chance to contest another stage win."

"It's the moment I've been waiting for all year. I've worked really hard, and I want to say thanks to everyone who has supported me," said Greipel, who rides for Omega Pharma. He dedicated his win to stricken teammate Jurgen van den Broeck, a yellow jersey hope who crashed out of the race injured Sunday. "It wasn't easy for us to lose a rider like that. I'm sure he would have been on the podium in Paris," added Greipel. "This morning when we went to visit him in the hospital he told me to go for the victory, and I'm happy to have done that for him."
Cavendish has won two stages on the 98th edition so far to take his career tally on the race to 17 unrivalled for a sprint specialist on the Tour. Claiming he made a mistake, Cavendish often presented as brash and opinionated was this time gracious in defeat. "I'm disappointed. I feel I made a mistake but Greipel beat me so there's not much I can say," said Cavendish, who beat Greipel into third on stage seven to Chateauroux.
"The only bad thing was we had Tony Martin with us. He didn't work because he's a teammate of Cavendish. But then when I saw the bunch coming back I saw Greipel was in a very good position, and very focused. It was nice."

"I went early, but it wasn't too early on this type of finish. But I didn't commit early enough, I didn't kick," added the Manxman. "I kind of rolled around (Jose Joaquin) Rojas, round the last corner, and kicked with 170 (metres) to go. Then Greipel just came past me and beat me. I'm happy for him. He's come to the Tour de France and he's won."
It was one of the few remaining sprint finishes remaining, and Greipel took full advantage of Cavendish losing his formidable sprint 'train' in the final kilometres. As the finish line came into view HTC Highroad sprinter Cavendish emerged from the wheel of Liquigas sprinter Daniel Oss to attack on his own. Greipel, however, had been keeping a close eye on his rival and immediately pulled out to the side, gritted his teeth and drove hard for the line where he beat the Isle of Man Womens Converse Shoes
A flurry of attacks followed, but two sharp corners inside the final kilometre made sure that a select bunch sprint was on the cards. Although HTC had battled to Cavendish that far, he was left exposed for the finish where he lacked the kick which, all too often, has booted his rivals into touch.
