The Australian Kaden Grove wins 6th stage of the Tour of Poyang Lake whileBIKE AID - Sprinter Tino Thömel comes 2nd.

It was basically the same as yesterday, except for the fact that there was no break-away in front when it came to the show-down on the finish line. On the mostly flat 6th stage over 117 kilometers, the guys from BIKE AID could once again hold the bunch together that it came to a bunch sprint at the end of the race and Tino Thömel had only been beaten by the fast Australian Kaden Grove.

The lead in the GC by Nikodemus Holler remains unchanged, as Suleiman Kangangi still sits in 2nd position and Salim Kipkemboi ranks 5th overall. Also BIKE AID is still leading the team GC with a gap of 7 minutes to the 2nd team.

Tomorrow the riders have a rest day, before the decisive period of the tour starts on Tuesday
