The white jersey has a new owner – although not its rightful one. Tadej Pogačar continues to lead the young rider classification, but Tom Pidcock (Ineos Grenadiers) will wear the jersey on his behalf, following his strong performance so far, which sees him currently in 5th position on GC.
Magnus Cort (EF Education-EasyPost) continues his reign in polka dots as King of the Mountains. Will he contest for the points available on today’s ascents – two category threes, prior to the category one finish at La Super Planche des Belles Filles?
After a day spent in the break, taking his yellow jersey on one final mad sojourn, Wout Van Aert reverts to his green jersey today. The Belgian leads the points classification by 61 ahead of Fabio Jakobsen in second.
Yesterday’s explosive stage from Binche to Longwy saw the yellow jersey change hands, as Tadej Pogačar put in a huge injection of pace at the finish to take the stage win and the maillot jaune.
It’s around half an hour until stage 7 of the Tour de France gets underway. Stay with us all day for updates on all the action as the race heads from Tomblaine, in the east of France, 176.3km south to La Super Planche des Belles Filles, the first summit finish of this year’s Tour.
