Andreas Kron (Lotto Soudal) won the sixth stage of the Tour de Suisse on Friday after Costa (UAE Team Emirates) was relegated to second place for deviating into the path of Kron.

Third place went to Hermann Pernsteiner (Bahrain Victorious), who kicked off the sprint before seeing the first two finish ahead.
“I think that we’ll always be discussing about it when something like that happens,” Kron said. “In my opinion, we started the sprint in the right and ended up on the left. That’s all I can say.”
“I’d need to see the sprint myself, but we can say the jury [has] taken the decision and I trust the jury, and I’m the winner and I’m happy for it,”
Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers) rode an uneventful day in the shelter of his teammates and keeps the overall lead of the race.
