Tour de France - Stage 6 Results
Troyes to Nancy, originally uploaded by mightymerk.
Italian Lorenzo Bernucci won the 6th stage of the Tour de France today, escaping a crash at the final turn of the race that ended in Nancy.
Lance Armstrong keeps the Yellow Jersey, but T-Mobile rider Alexandre Vinokourov gained time on him by finishing 2nd in the stage and is now just 53 seconds behind Lance.
The final standings for the stage are:
1. Lorenzo Bernucci (FAS)
2. Alexandre Vinokourov (TMO)
3. Robert Forster (GST)
4. Angelo Furlan (DOM)
5. Thor Hushovd (C.A)
6. Kim Kirchen (FAS)
7. Gianluca Bortolami (LAM)
8. Egoi Martinez (EUS)
9. Gerrit Glomser (LAM)
10. Kurt Atle Arvesen (CSC)
The next stage will take place tomorrow a 228km affair from Lunneville, France to Karlsruhe, Germany. I expect the top German riders and the German teams of T-Mobile and Gerolsteiner to be particularly aggressive.
