2013 Tour de France: Stage 6 Results

Andre “The Gorilla” Greipel nabbed a win in the 6th stage of the 2013 Tour de France, besting Peter Sagan and Marcel Kittel by a bike length. Mark Cavendish, derailed by a crash at the 30km mark and riding with only 1 team member in support, faded at the end to finish in 4th.

Though Peter Sagan has yet to snag a stage win of his own, he continues to lead the green jersey points classification. Greipel’s win bumps him into second place ahead of Cavendish.

In the race for the general classification, Orica-GreenEdge’s Daryl Impey moves into the lead, taking the place of his teammate Simon Gerrans. Impey sets a small record of his own as the first South African to wear the yellow jersey.
