Mark Cavendish narrowly misses out at Road World Championship as Peter Sagan triumphs in hectic desert race

Mark Cavendish narrowly failed to win his second Road World Championship title in Doha after being just beaten on the line by defending champion Peter Sagan.
In a bunched sprint finish to the line Cavendish was pipped by the length of the Slovakian's bike after a gruelling 257.5-kilometre ride in searing heat and tricky crosswinds.
Windy conditions in the desert saw the race split with about 80km remaining with Cavendish, and fellow Briton Adam Blyth, among those in the lead group.
