Tadej Pogacar takes Tour de France yellow jersey after stage 6 victory

Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) won the sixth stage of the Tour de France in an uphill sprint at Longwy on a day that will be long remembered for the sustained but doomed attack of yellow jersey Wout van Aert at the head of the race.

The Jumbo-Visma man eventually donated his yellow jersey to Pogačar, but only after he had been on the attack at the front of the game for most of the day. Van Aert repeatedly split the field in the first kilometres, and he was the last survivor of the day break before finally being caught and dropped by the pack with 11km to go.
