Ongar's Mark Cavendish has completed a hat-trick of stage wins on the Tour of Turkey today.

The Omega Pharma-Quick Step rider won the opening two stages before Estonian rider and overall leader Rein Taaramäe won the third stage.

"I'm incredibly satisfied," Cavendish told the BBC.

Omega Pharma-Quick Step were among the peloton which caught Davide de la Fuente after the Torku rider attacked over the final climb of the 124km route.

Australian Peter Renshaw stayed with Cavendish until the final 100m, before the 28-year-old Brit broke to claim the stage win.
