Domenico Pozzovivo fought impressively on stage 6 of the Tour de France to finish in the maillot jaune group at Mont Aigoual. Alexey Lutsenko (Astana), one of the day’s early escapees in the breakaway eventually rode solo to a hugely impressive win. Jesus Herrada (COF) was second with Greg van Avermaet (CCC) third. Edvald Boasson Hagen made the day’s eight-man breakaway and also took maximum points at the intermediate points, before he dropped back to finish safely in a big group following Edvald Boasson Hagen I was one of the last to get into the break and I actually had quite a nice day out.
