After the show of force Jonas Vingegaard Thursday, the Dane was once again expected at the top this Friday June 9 but it was the breakaway of the day which went to the end with the victory of Georg Zimmermann which made the difference in the last percentages of the 6th stage even if Mathieu Burgaudeau managed to make the jump to get back on his wheel 400 meters from the finish.
The day was led by the latter, made up of Nans Peters (AG2R Citroën), Jonathan Castroviejo (Ineos Grenadiers), Andrea Bagioli and Dries Devenyns (Soudal Quick-Step), Andrey Amador (EF Education-EasyPost), Georg Zimmermann (Intermarché- Circus-Wanty), Matteo Jorgenson (Movistar), Matteo Trentin (UAE Team Emirates), Axel Zinglé (Cofidis), Lawson Craddock (Jayco AlUla), Mathieu Burgaudeau, Matteo Vercher and Alexis Vuillermoz (TotalEnergies) and Simon Guglielmi (Arkéa Samsic) . During the ascent of the Col des Aravies, Burgaudeau, Zimmermann and Castroviejo, the strongest, went to the front and therefore played for the final victory. Behind, the favorites were neutralized despite the small attack from Jonas Vingegaard.
