Latest news

    Dan Martin had the strength to hold off the chasing pack

    Ireland’s Dan Martin produced a superb late attack on the Mur de Bretagne to win stage six of the Tour de France.

    Birmingham-born Martin went with a kilometre to go on the final climb and held off the late challenge of Pierre Roger Latour by a second.

    Team Sky’s Geraint Thomas was part of a group three seconds behind but climbed to second overall after securing two bonus seconds during the stage.

    Chris Froome was eight seconds back but Tom Dumoulin lost nearly a minute.

    The Dutchman had to have a front wheel change just over 5km from the finish and chased desperately with the help of team-mates to try to limit the damage.
