- Slovenian catches rival by surprise with violent acceleration
- Vingegaard takes yellow jersey as Jai Hindley wilts
Wrist injury or no wrist injury, Tadej Pogacar is unlikely to ever back down. After losing time in the first Pyrenean stage to Laruns, the Slovenian came out fighting on stage six of the Tour de France, a mountain finish to Cauterets-Cambasque, throwing down the gauntlet to the defending champion, Jonas Vingegaard.
In what was his 10th stage win in the Tour and yet another virtuoso solo attack from the 2020 and 2021 victor, Pogacar justified the belief that, despite his long lay-off, he will get better as the race goes on.
