Milan - Britain's Mark Cavendish won his second successive stage and fourth of the 2013 Giro d'Italia on Friday.

Giacomo Nizzolo of Italy finished second in the bunch sprint that decided the 254-kilometre stage from Busseto to Cherasco, the longest of this year's race. Slovenia's Luka Mezgec was third.

Italy's Vincenzo NIbali remains in the overall lead on a day when 2012 winner Ryder Hesjedal of Canada and pre-race favourite Bradley Wiggins both failed to start the stage because of illness.
