Tour de France wrap after stage six

  • Fabio Aru claimed his maiden Tour de France win in Paris

"It was everything I was dreaming of", added the 24-year-old Calmejane, who also won a stage in the 2016 Vuelta a Espana.

They will be further tested on Sunday, when the ninth stage takes the peloton through the Jura mountains with three lung-busting climbs in prospect before a unsafe descent to Chambery.

Froome s Sky team-mate and British compatriot Geraint Thomas remains second at 12sec with Italian Fabio Aru, the victor of Wednesday s fifth stage, third at 14sec.

Italian Aru won the 160.5km stage that finished on the La Planche des Belles Filles climb.

An eight-man breakaway took off early in the stage and built up a maximum lead of three and a half minutes.

I've been telling Richie and the guys here that Irish porridge tastes way better than the stuff the team usually use but they didn't believe me, until they tried it last week.

Britain's Chris Froome had a minor scare when he went off the road in a descent, but the Team Sky rider kept his cool in sweltering heat to retain the overall leader's yellow jersey.

Friday is "another long day and I think the aim of that is just to sap the energy a bit", Porte said.

Froome remained 12 seconds ahead of Sky teammate Geraint Thomas and 14 seconds ahead of Fabio Aru of Italy.

Fabio Aru made a statement of intent on Wednesday and showed he is the heir apparent to 2014 Tour de France victor and Italian compatriot Vincenzo Nibali. You just have to see how it will be raced.

Two days ago, there was a crash in the final kilometre of the stage even before Sagan's elbow on Cavendish, a victor of 30 Tour stages.

The controversy that unfolded on Stage 4 when Sagan's elbow knocked Cavendish off his bike ultimately sent both home, leaving Kittel in a strong position claim the green jersey.

"It's an unbelievable feeling to be back in yellow, but having said that I know race far, far from over, it's only just begun for me", said Froome.

Morning. So, after a couple of pleasurable flat stages for the GC riders in which the sprinters have come to the fore, we're off to the Jura mountains today where pleasure-riding will be nonexistent. There is always the possibility, however, that Froome will hammer his rivals with one big blow like he did in the ascent to La Pierre Saint Martin in 2015.
