Another high speed day in the books for our guys as today’s average speed was again above the 44km/h.
The sixth stage of the Tour de Normandie presented a challenging initial terrain with 3 categorized climbs, and after several attempts the final breakaway of the day was formed by four riders.
The peloton kicked up the pace as they got to the hilly local circuit but the victory remained upfront and it was played in a four men sprint. Because of the accumulated fatigue and the exigent parcour the peloton was down to 40 riders in the closing part of the race, and in the reduced sprint Gabriel Cullaigh took 10th, securing his second Top 10 finish of the week.
One more stage to go!
