This is obviously the main information to remember this Thursday, after the sixth stage of the Tour de France between Binche and Longwy. After these 219.9 kms, the longest of the Grande Boucle this year, Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) not only won the day’s stage, he also regained the yellow jersey a year after wearing it. on the Champs-Elysees.

What a final also for the French David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ) who took advantage of the final sprint to claim a very good third place and thus enter the Top 10 of the general classification.

Slovenian Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) won his seventh career stage in the Tour de France on Thursday. In addition to stealing the yellow jersey from Wout van Aert, he also equalized the Belgian in the number of career stage victories on the Grande Boucle.

With a start to the stage marked by several attacks, the Belgian Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) had a great race at a frantic and intensive pace, prancing in the lead for most of the stage. Nevertheless, the green jersey cracked on the coast of Montigny-sur-Chiers ten kilometers from the finish, leaving a boulevard for the Slovenian to regain the general classification.

The now ex-yellow jersey did not manage to keep up with the pace of the peloton, led by the Groupama-FDJ and the Bahrain-Victorious.

Tadej Pogacar, winner of the sixth stage of the Tour de France on Thursday and wearer of the yellow jersey: “The more I earn, the better. The stage was very hard, the first two hours were crazy, the strongest (van Aert) was in the breakaway and a lot of riders wanted to be in front. I wondered at one point if we were going to take him back but the peloton was the strongest. Then, as I felt good, the team worked hard to put me in the best position. It was not a pure sprint. We went very fast in the last two climbs. Fortunately, I had good legs. The goal was not to take the yellow jersey but I am very happy with the victory.

For more than 130 kilometers, W. Van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) J. Fuglsang (Israel – Premier Tech) and Q. Simmons (Trek-Segafredo) fought at the head of the race with an average speed of 50.27 km/ h. The Dane and the American ended up giving up and letting the Belgian finish the solo race in the lead – before being caught by the peloton. But this fight will have been one of the key images to remember today.
