Yes, it was one of those days again. Stage 6, the shortest stage of the tour with about 105 km and slightly hilly. A perfect day .... for a break-away. That's how Clint Hendricks thought and so he was on fire from the beginning of the stage and sat in a 8-man group. At the KOM of the day, he broke away with two other riders and they should fight for the victory among themselves at the end.
Actually not a great situation: one against two - because the other two were teammates of the Chinese professional team Livall and so the initial situation on paper looked rather moderate.
But at the end it comes often unexpected, because Clint is a fast sprinter and left both at the end of no chance and won the stage with class.
Nikodemus Holler is still third in the GC, only 28 seconds down. In the team ranking BIKE AID took the lead with today's stage.
