Vuelta a España Stage 6: Yates Gets Away

New, 173 comments

No changes to overall

It was a pretty spicy stage today as orica-Bike Exchange's Simon Yates helped himself to an unintended handsling from Movistar's Dani Moreno to get away from the peloton, sweep up a lone breakaway rider in Dimension Data's Omar Fraile, and solo home for the victory.

No changes to the overall of note.
