Mark Cavendish’s thrilling win in Milan-San Remo has already been posted on internet video site Youtube.

The British sprinter won by centimetres after a nail-biting chase of Cervelo’s Heinrich Haussler who had surprised the peloton by taking a flyer. Cavendish was first to react, and not a moment too soon. Had he left it any later he would never have caught the German.

Scroll down to watch the nail biting finish. Commentary is in Belgian, but it’s obvious that even they though it was too close to call.

Watch the final kilometre…..
