HTC’s Tour de France team wins Stage 2 of the competition


While there is no doubt we have a love-hate relationship with HTC (3.5mm headphone jacks!!!) there is also no doubt that, if we had to chose, most of us cheer them on when they do well, so we will probably enjoy the news that HTC’s sponsored cycling team won Stage 2 of the gruelling Tour de France earlier today.

Britain’s Mark Cavendish won the stage after a trademark lead out by his Columbia-HTC team in Provence.

The 24-year-old sprinter made his dash to the line early and held off a late challenge from American Tyler Farrar of Garmin-Slipstream to take the green jersey.

As usual, it came after some expert riding from his Columbia team-mates, who reeled in an early breakaway of four riders before George Hincapie and Mark Renshaw propelled their man to the front.

"It was brilliant, and the team was so strong," Cavendish told Eurosport. "We were the only sprinting team riding for it and today we meant business. Everyone did their part and I felt good today."

Speaking about the sponsorship. Peter Chou, CEO of HTC said "The HTC High Road Sports partnership is a great match of like minded organizations driven by innovation, excellence and competitiveness and we are excited about the opportunity to communicate HTCs brand value through the great sport of cycling."
