Nico Denz wins the 6th stage of the Tour de Suisse ahead of Clément Champoussin

We had to wait for the commissioners’ decision for more than three minutes. Finally Nico Denz jumped Clément Champoussin on the line, at the top of the Col de Moosalp, justice of the peace of this 6th stage of the Tour de Suisse. The German rider from the DSM team won after a morning breakaway of 11 riders.

The general classification, marked by the abandonment of 29 Covid-positive runners on Friday morning, is still dominated by the Dane Jakob Fuglsang. The rider of the Israel Premier-Tech team has a small second advantage over the former winner of the Tour de France, Geraint Thomas. Sergio Higuita completes the podium at ten seconds.

Thibaut Pinot in the role of team member

The Swiss Stefan Küng, who is racing at home, is in 7th place in the general classification and has established himself as the leader of the Groupama-FDJ formation during the week. He was able to count on Friday on the support of Thibaut Pinot who, in search of sensation before the Tour de France (July 1-24), turned into a luxury teammate, having nothing more to play for in the general classification. The 7th stage, once again mountainous, will join Malbun from Ambri.
