The 6th stage of the Criterium du Dauphine would be an action packed day of racing. Rui Costa (Lampre-Merida) would ride away with all the spoils on the day, edging out Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) in the end. With the rain pouring down, the flag dropped to set the riders off. There were countless attacks for at least the first 70km’s. As soon as a group would get away and force out a 20″ lead, they were reeled right back in. Steven Cummings was MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung’s most active rider, as he found himself in numerous early breakaways. Nibali was also very.
