Vingegaard wins stage 6 to take Tour of Poland lead

SHARE

Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma) was part of a breakaway sprint just 300 metres from the finish line, beating out both Pavel Sivakov (Team Ineos) and Jai Hindley (Team Sunweb) to claim stage 6 in Tour of Poland.

It had seemed that Hindley was in control as he took pole position in the breakaway into the urban roads of Koscielisko, and he was favourite with halff a kilometre to go. However Vingegaard unleashed a suprise sprint of his own and relegated the other two rivals to the final two podium places.

The win for the 22-year-old rider took the leader’s jersey from Bora-hansgrohe’s Pascal Ackermann, who had led from the fist stage, and he now has a four second advantage over Sivakov.

Sergio Higuita (EF Education First) crossed the line eight seconds in arrears, while a third group that included some of the main GC contenders crossed the line another two seconds back.
