Yates soars into Giro lead, Chaves wins stage

  • Giro d'Italia 2018 – stage six results and latest standings after Esteban Chaves leads Mitchelton Scott one-two on Mount Etna as Simon Yates takes lead

Yates began the day in sixth place, 17 seconds behind race leader Rohan Dennis of Australia, but attacked other general classification hopefuls in the final two kilometres of the 163km stage to Mount Etna. It's a dream to have the stage, pink jersey and blue jersey. At 1.5km out, he rocketed away from 2017 race victor Dumoulin, Froome and other favourites.

"The start was insane.

I didn't really have to do anything, I could sit in the wheels and save energy", Yates said after becoming the first Brit to wear the Maglia Rosa since Mark Cavendish in 2013.

"I just saw a bit of a moment where we'd been riding quite hard for a little bit and I had a very small gap".

Yates, who won the young rider classification at last year's Tour de France, leads defending champion Tom Dumoulin by 16 seconds.

From the outset, Mitchelton-Scott have insisted on a dual-pronged approach to this Giro, but in terms of Giro experience, at least, Chaves can claim to be the senior partner, given that he carried the pink jersey to the final weekend two years ago, when he placed second overall behind Vincenzo Nibali.

Team Sky's Chris Froome, who is bidding to make history as only the third man to win three of cycling's Grand Tours in a row, finds himself in eighth spot. Yates made his move with 1500 metres remaining and surged into the lead before indicating to Chaves he should take the win.

"There?s still a lot of work ahead of us, but there?s still a lot of racing to come".

"In the end it was a really a ideal day", Yates said wearing the famous maglia rosa. "I looked across the road and everyone was looking at each other".

The result also doubles as an extremely positive sign of his chances for the slew of mountain-top finishes coming later in the race, after he showed no signs of weakness on the first mountain of the 2018 Giro.

Friday's Stage 7 is a 159km route from Pizzo to Praia a Mare, following along Italy's eastern coast travelling north.
