Giro d'Italia - Stage 6
Giro d'Italia


Stage 6 / 21: Flat, 177km

Montecatini Terme - Castiglione della Pescaia

Part 1 / 2

Profile & Map:



Welcome back to the Giro d'Italia, it's day number six and we've just left behind the Apennines for the moment. After three stages with medium difficulty, we'll have an easy one on the menu today - with some hills nonetheless to not let the climbing legs completely cool down.

After everyone crossed the finish line yesterday, the riders took the same road downhill for the first part, then heading a little further South to arrive at today's starting venue, Montecatini Terme. As the name says pretty clearly, this town hosts one of the most well-known spas around, with tourism hence being among the most important economic sectors in the region. About 20,000 people live here, whereof many are employed in one of more than 200 hotels around.

We're pretty sure that most riders enjoyed the spa yesterday after the race, having just completed the first mountain stage. Today, they will head back to the sea - but no longer to Liguria, but to Tuscany. Stage 6 will end in Castiglione della Pescaia, vis-Ă -vis of the Elba island. And - you guessed it - it's another popular seaside resort, although just around 7,000 people live here. Built around a medieval fortress, it's clear that having a sight of those ancient stones is the main thing to do here besides bathing. And there's the natural reserve Diaccia Botrona, a swampy environment where you can observe some flamingoes.

Maybe some riders will take the time to enjoy the region's wildlife, but first they have some work to do! Just about half the altitude gain they had in the last few days, but it's still 1,300 meters - as we said, it's a sprinter stage, but one preventing the climbing legs to completely cool down. Whereas the stage is flat for most of the 177 kilometers, there's still a section crossing the Colline Metallifere, the "metal-bearing hills", where we'll have a steady up-and-down for about 50 kilometers.

The first of these hills is actually the longest ascent and hence the only KoM sprint of today's stage, in the village of Pomarance, which will be reached after 88.3km. As it's only a category 4 sprint, the only thing that could happen here would be one of the co-leaders in the KoM standings claiming the exclusive lead.

After some more climbing and descending, the riders will reach the intermediate sprint in Massa Marittima 40 kilometers later, from where a final descent and about 40km of flat roads will be left.

But despite the profile being not too hard, we might have a new element making for a difficult stage today - the wind, blowing currently at 36km/h from the Adriatic to the Tyrrhenian sea - or from East to West, for those who haven't followed Tirreno - Adriatico in terms of geography.

So this stage will even more favor the sprinter teams with a lot of strong flat riders - but it might catch by surprise some climbers who are weaker on the flat. Let's see if that wind has some impact - it will definitely not favor yet another breakaway success, whereof we had three in a row now.

And before we finally jump into the action, let's take a look at the bookies' favorites once again. The list has a lot of similarities with the one from stage 2 - obviously, as the top sprinters are still the same. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Kennaugh and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare should stand above the rest; the bookmakers decided to give three stars as well to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Van Poppel today.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Eislers, stage 2 winner pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Appollonio and first Maglia Rosa of the race, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Hsu, come next on the list, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Afewerki, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Goss, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Granjel Cabrera and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Meyer rounding off the Top 10. In terms of Maglia Ciclamino, both pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Appollonio have a great chance of taking this jersey, being 21 and 22 points down in the standings - and 50 points on offer for the stage winner. Let's see!


The riders are lined up in Montecatini Terme - let's get this stage started!


That didn't take long today! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Setiawa attacks soon after the start line, followed by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Bayly.


We said that yesterday's stage wasn't the optimal one for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych to attack - today, it is! So maybe yesterday was just a warm-up for him?

He is followed by - no, not pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Fedeli for once, but it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Sajnok who tries today!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Mullen then tries to double the numbers for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Polar, chasing after pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Rajapakshage and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Daniel.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Serrano and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Holmes try to join them, but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Blums and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Madouas don't approve this attack.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Hofstede joins them in the chase, and he gets back pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Holmes - whereas pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Serrano just had that small gap allowing him to stay clear. For now, at least.


More attacks follow a little later - actually, we have already covered 20 kilometers - and this time it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Frison joined by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Gamper. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Arif Prayogo, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Holmes again, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Clarke and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Gabburo are trying their luck, too - but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Aranburu is alread on the Italian's wheel, not allowing him to get away.


Finally, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Madouas and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Leung close the gap - but at the same time have left behind the pack as well, as they were just chasing too hard! As soon as they notice, they stop their move, allowing pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Frison and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Gamper to get some meters again.


But a little later, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Madouas catches them definitively, this time pulling the whole pack with him. You can already see now the impact of the wind, with the riders lined up one after the other. For now, they've got enough energy to stay inside the line - but what will happen on the closing kilometers?


Let's take a look up front, where the first seven attackers have regrouped in the meantime. We have pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Mullen, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Daniel, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Setiawa, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Rajapakshage, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Sajnok and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Bayly up front, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Serrano trailing by 55". The pack is two minutes down.


They're not riding too fast, as they probably don't want to get everyone tired too soon. For those leading the pack, it must be energy-sapping, though, with these strong crosswinds. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Madouas still leads the pack, ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Clarke and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Hofstede.


Another look at the head of the race shows that nothing has changed - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Serrano just doesn't manage to close that one-minute gap. The seven men up front are riding really, really slowly, as is the peloton - but the Spaniard seems to be too exhausted already to catch up with them.

Anyway, with the pack trailing by more than three minutes, it's pretty safe to assume that we have found our breakaway of the day. Let's see what types of riders we have up front today.

What sticks out most is the pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Polar duo of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Mullen, who both are really strong on the flat. The former additionally has the best acceleration of all riders within the group, while the latter has the best resistance.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Daniel then is a strong flat rider, too, but he absolutely can't sprint. His resistance could however enable him to do a long-range attack - but even this would seem to be quite a hopeless move agains the pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Polar duo.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Bayly's main strength is definitely in uphill terrain, so he might to try tiring out all the others on the hilly part. Being the second-strongest sprinter could help him in the finale, too.

When speaking of sprint, we definitely have to mention pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Sajnok, who is clearly the strongest in this discipline. If he can keep up in the uphill parts and hold on until the end - despite being among the weakest on the flat in this group - he should be the big favorite.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Rajapakshage is pretty fast on the flat, too, although he can't keep up with the pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Polar duo or with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Daniel. He will need something special to win, though, as he probably don't even know how to spell "sprint".

And finally, there's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Setiawa, whose main strength should be in the hilly sections. Sprinting won't be an option for him - but as he is clearly the weakest member on the flat, he can't try a late attack, either. Maybe he can still surprise us?

Let's just take a look at pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Serrano, too - in case he finally catches up. He'd be the strongest puncheur and second best sprinter, with the best acceleration of all the escapees. However, first he has to get up front, and then he needs to have enough energy left to actually keep up until the end.

And, of course, there's one big enemy of all of them: the peloton, who surely doesn't want to hand out the stage win to the breakaway for the fourth time in a row!


That's a pretty bad moment for a puncture, just a few moments before the peloton starts the sole categorized climb of the day. Let's see if pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Canty can catch up again.


When speaking of that climb, let's take a look at its profile. Really not a hard one, but still 6 kilometers long. Yet, it would be a surprise if anyone was left behind by the time we'll reach the top.


The escapees have just reached the first slopes of that hill. With still 3 minutes of advantage, we can be pretty sure now that nothing of much interest will happen concerning the KoM standings.

Serrano has lost quite a lot of time by now, trailing by 1'37". The pack is 2'48" down - it's now more likely they will catch pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Serrano than the Spaniard joining the front group.


Yet another puncture - this time even on the uphill! And it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Bongiorno who needs to get a wheel changed! Fortunately, though, his team car was just behind the pack, so he only loses a few seconds.

By the way, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Canty has easily re-joined the pack in the meantime.


With 800m to the top, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Rajapakshage launches the sprint for the points. He doesn't have any so far, can he change that?


Yes, he can - but he only gets one tiny point, being outsprinted by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Sajnok and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Bayly:

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Sajnok - 5 (5)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Bayly - 3 (3)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Rajapakshage - 1 (1)

Which means that pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Budenieks will share the lead for another day.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Serrano crosses the line 2'20" later, with the pack another minute behind. We definitely don't have the same gaps as yesterday!


What's wrong with those bikes today? A few meters from the top, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/tti.png Novikov has to stop and wait for his team car - unlike pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Bongiorno a little earlier, he doesn't just lose some seconds while waiting!

He'll probably catch up in the upcoming hilly section, though, being a strong climber.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Clarke and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Martin set an end to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Serrano's suffering, as he's no longer all alone now. 80 kilometers to go, 3'30" to the front group. Everything is under control, it seems.


The escapees have just reached the highest point of today's stage, led by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Rajapakshage. Only two more uphill sections ahead, with 70km to go in total.

Meanwhile, the peloton has slightly accelerated, reducing the gap to 3'06".


A little later, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Bayly already leads them over the day's final hilltop, with the descent to the intermediate sprint right ahead!

It's another 10km later now, and the pack has reduced its deficit even more - it's down to 2'48".

And behind the peloton, we have a first rider not keeping up anymore. No, you are (probably) wrong, as today it's pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Dewulf.


48km to go, as the leaders reach the intermediate sprint in Massa Marittima. Absolutely no-one shows any interest in those points, so they are just distributed in the order they happened to have at that point.

1. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Daniel - 10 (10)
2. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Rajapakshage - 6 (6)
3. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Sajnok - 4 (4)
4. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Mullen - 2 (2)
5. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Bayly - 1 (6)

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Malecki thus currently retains the lead in the points standings, but with 50 points still on offer, that may well change.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Van der Kooij almost looks like he's sprinting for the points, but this picture just shows that the pack has clearly put the foot on the gas. They cross the sprint line with only 2'12" remaining.

Now, it's one last downhill, followed by 40 flat kilometers - the stage favorites and GC contenders better be aware from now on!
Giro d'Italia


Stage 6 / 21: Flat, 177km

Montecatini Terme - Castiglione della Pescaia

Part 2 / 2


The peloton has reached the end of that final descent, and the gap has shrunk to 1'43". 40 kilometers to go!

We see most of the sprinters and GC contenders well positioned - let's hope they're attentive enough to not lose time in some possible echelons! With the (cross-)wind still blowing at about 30km/h, this could be a real danger!


Just a little more than 20 kilometers to go - and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Setiawa decides it's time to make his move! The peloton has dangerously approached on the previous 20 kilometers, trailing by less than a minute now!


And when speaking of the pack - that's a picture some managers will find absolutely horrible! In fact, we have pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Brenes in second-last position, and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Bongiorno just four or five spots ahead! Did the puncture cost the Italian so much energy, or why is he back here?

However, he isn't the only one not well-placed at all; pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Aru is side-by-side with his compatriot, but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Arndt, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Faglum Karlsson, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Salinas, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Kennaugh, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Kirsch, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Ji, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Anacona and sprinter pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Appollonio aren't much further ahead, either! They'd rather move up fast now, or else... we'll see.


Under the 20km banner, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Bayly joins pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Rajapakshage, with the five others 24" behind. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Daniel and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Mullen are doing most of the work, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych apparently just waiting and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Sajnok and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Rajapakshage not having much left.

Although, if they want to have a tiny chance, they'd better hurry up, as the peloton is only 33" behind these five!


3 kilometers later, we have all of them bar pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Mullen - who's caught by the pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Cavagna - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Bystrom express - catching up with the two leaders again. 40" of advantage remaining - that won't be enough.


Let's take another look at the end of the pack, where we still have pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Brenes and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Bongiorno - but they don't even seem to care! However, with the wind blowing from the left - it has now gone up to 39km/h - the shape of the peloton shouldn't actually please them...


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Bayly is again on the move, with 15km to go! He's now 17" ahead of the chasers, and still 49" ahead of the pack - which doesn't seem to come that much closer right now!


Uh-oh, now it has happened! The peloton is breaking up!

And lots of riders are on the wrong side of this split - both sprinters and GC contenders! Let's take a look at the most notable names:
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/fes.png Nizzolopcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Appolloniopcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png Cullaighpcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Afewerki

The gap is small right now - but if they don't react right away, it will surely increase!


And while his world class puncheur teammate pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Izagirre is caught behind, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych makes his move with 10 kilometers to go!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Daniel, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Rajapakshage, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Sajnok, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Bayly and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Setiawa trail by 17", and the peloton is 38" behind!


There are even more splits, with only 20 riders having made it to the first group this time! Let's see who is on the wrong side this time:
pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Gosspcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Hsupcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Granjel Cabrerapcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Meyer

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Talansky

Lots of big names, leaving mainly the top favorites for the sprint, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Kennaugh, up front! Plus pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Shikai, for whom this could be a great day!


The pack has grown back to 59 riders - but this was due to having slowed down, meaning pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych still is in the lead with only 5 kilometers remaining! The rest of the escapees are about to be caught by pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Mager and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Major, but the Russian is still leading by 40 seconds!


This shot was taken at the same time - and it shows the sub-par situation for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Barguil, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Brenes and the likes! All who were caught by that first split are still trailing now, while the ones having missed out on the second split are back up front!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych just needs to hold on for 2,500 more meters to get this GT stage win! It's amazing how he's still resisting the pack, making the best possible use of his strong flat capabilities!


52" further behind, the pack is preparing for the sprint as well - but as you'd guess with only 58 riders left, it's all pretty chaotic. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Mraouni leads ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Vermeltfoort, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Hsu already side-by-side with his leadout pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Viviani.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Kennaugh is pretty well placed as well, behind pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Major, whereas pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Goss is already ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Luchshenko. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare is waiting in about 15th position - his possible leadouts apparently all were used for the chase, no-one left to protect him.


It's the Fiamma Rossa for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych, who is surely benefitting from the tailwind on the final kilometers, but he's simply putting in a huge, huge ride today! He still has 49" on the pack - this stage must be his!


As the pack reaches this point, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych is just 600m away from the line! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Kennaugh launches a very, very long sprint with 1,200m to go, hoping to somehow catch the Russian!

Alongside him, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Vermeltfoort is the first rider of a pretty long queue, consisting of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Viviani, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Hsu, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Luchshenko, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Goss, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Mraouni, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Van Winden, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Naud, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Danacik, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Eislers, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Leung and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Granjel Cabrera. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Contreras is riding to the left of the latter, whereas pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Van Poppel and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Gamper are alongside pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Mraouni.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Meyer has completely missed this move, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare even further behind! What's wrong with the Frenchman? Wake up, boy, the sprinter jersey is at stake!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Artem Nych does not care at all about what's happening behind him, as he simply rides on to win here in Castiglione della Pescaia! What a great day for him and wildcard team pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Polar! Wow!


To say that the fight for 2nd is wide open would be exaggerated, as that spot seems to be pretty safe for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Kennaugh. However, behind the Brit pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Goss, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Vermeltfoort and the team's actual sprinter pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Van Poppel are fighting for 3rd, with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Hsu still in the mix, too. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Contreras is quickly closing in as well, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Eislers, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Granjel Cabrera and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Meyer, who has finally woken up, are looking to fight for lower Top 10 positions only.


It's indeed pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Peter Kennaugh who takes 2nd place, 25" behind the surprising stage winner.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Goss seems to have the best cards in the fight for the last podium spot, but pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Van Poppel is moving faster! pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Contreras, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Hsu, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Eislers, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Meyer, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Granjel Cabrera and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Gamper (who, please?) are fighting for the next positions.

Further behind, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Taaramäe has launched his sprint as well and is the first of the "rest".


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Matthew Goss takes the final place on the podium, outsprinting pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ebd.png Danny Van Poppel. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/isa.png Emiliano Contreras finishes 5th, while it's a close fight for 6th between pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Hsu and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Eislers!


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/kng.png Hsuan Ping Hsu wins the duel against pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Ingus Eislers, while pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Cameron Meyer has to settle for 8th.

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Raul Granjel Cabrera sprints to 9th, while surprising Austrian cobbler/TTer (no, definitely not sprinter) pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Patrick Gamper takes the final Top 10 spot.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Arnaud Demare then narrowly edges out world class sprinters pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/akm.png Rein Taaramäe and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Kristaps Budenieks for 11th. Don't ask me what happened to him - maybe he just felt more like a puncheur than like a sprinter today? It's another missed opportunity for him - that's starting to get pathetic...

With pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ubs.png Andrei Amador, the next GC rider then comes in 14th, ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Patrick Naud, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/bnm.png Jack Haig, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gen.png Simon Spilak, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/mos.png Jakub Danacik, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/eav.png Andy Schleck and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Martins Blums, who rounds off today's Top 20.

But what's probably much more interesting for some managers is: where is that second group? And how much time will they lose?


Here they are, trying to sprint as fast as they can! They're not far off the last riders of the peloton, who are pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/aeg.png Valls and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Setiawa.


pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/grm.png Cosnefroy leads this group across the line, more than 1'30" behind today's stage winner! We'll have to wait for another moment to get the exact times, but that stage will definitely hurt some riders' ambitions!


And it's even worse for pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Carapaz, who finishes 171st, within one of the last groups, losing more than three minutes to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Nych! Fortunately, pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Volvo still have another leader in pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Faglum Karlsson - who just finished in the second group, though.


The officials are still counting and calculating, and so we have enough time to wait for the final rider finishing this stage: pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/lpu.png Stan Dewulf. The Belgian loses over 15 minutes today, but is still easily inside the time limit, which was set to 28'32".

And now, we get notice that the victory ceremony is about to start - where the official results will finally be communicated as well!


And today's winner is... pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Artem Nych! The Russian was part of a breakaway with very strong flat riders, whereof he was the best. He definitely benefitted from his teammate pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Mullen's tremendous work, and finally had enough reserves to ride away and fend off the approaching peloton! It's a great win for the PCT rider and his team, congratulations!

pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Peter Kennaugh on the other hand won't be that happy, especially not with his team's work. It definitely shouldn't happen that the breakaway can defend a two minute gap on 40 flat kilometers - but they did, and so he "only" got the 2nd place today. Moving up a bit in the points standings won't be much of a consolation for him - but at least four more chances for the sprinters are ahead!

3rd place goes to aging star pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/ino.png Matthew Goss, who at 34 years is still able to get a GT stage podium. Well done!

And then, we get the subsequent places - and we can already see some red-faced riders and managers, as the judges announce that all riders up to pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/rak.png Iino in 163rd place get the time of 2nd placed pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/afk.png Kennaugh! They simply act as if those gaps hadn't been there, and especially the teams who worked a lot to create and even increase them are pretty ... let's just say: angry, right now - and I can fully understand them!

When confronted with this anger, the officials just said: "We make the rules, you race. If you don't agree, don't race." Let's see if there will be any consequences to this more than questionable ruling...


But while all these discussions are still ongoing, let's turn back to the podium, and cheer 4-jersey-man pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Kamil Malecki! The Pole surely didn't have an easy day, arriving inside that 2nd group and hence benefitting from the officials' ruling on the gaps, but at the end of the day, he defends not one, not two, but all of his four jerseys!

In the GC, he still leads 3'48" ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Cyril Barthe and with a 9'10" margin on pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Kristaps Budenieks - which is the exact same order in the U25 standings.

For the Maglia Ciclamino, he clearly benefitted from pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pum.png Demare messing up his sprint and pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/vlv.png Appollonio not even being there; pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Kamil Malecki didn't collect any points, and so he still leads with 72 points - but just 6 points ahead of stage winner pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Artem Nych! The Russian may regret now not having gone for those 10 points at the intermediate sprint, which would have allowed him to take the jersey. He'll wear it anyway tomorrow, in the Pole's stead. In 3rd place, we have pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Mikel Bizkarra, who couldn't add any points to his 61, either.

We already saw that there's not much movement in the Maglia Azzurra standings, with only one 4th category climb on the menu. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Kamil Malecki still co-leads together with pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/evo.png Kristaps Budenieks, both totalling 26 points. The Latvian will again wear the jersey tomorrow. pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/iso.png Mikel Bizkarra is 3rd in this list as well, still having 18 points.


And you have probably guessed it - pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/pol.png Polar did not only retain their lead in the team standings, but thanks to their great stage win even extended it by 25 seconds! They now lead 1'24" ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/gzl.png Gazelle and 6'52" ahead of pcmdaily.com/images/mg/2020/Micros/yor.png cycleYorkshire.

That's all we have for you from this 6th stage of the Giro d'Italia. We saw the fourth breakaway win in a row - although it was pretty close - and we once again had discussions about gaps, this time even much more than on stage 4. Let's see how the team managers will tackle this problem... Probably they'll just have to take it - and sometimes they will be on the bright side of the rulings, some times not.

But let's hope that tomorrow we'll mainly talk about cycling and not about officials, as we have another beautiful hilly stage on the menu to round off this first Giro week! See you then!
