Yates bosses stage, Alaphilippe keeps Paris-Nice lead

 

Fayence, France, March 10, 2017 (AFP) – Briton Simon Yates came home alone in Friday’s sixth stage of the Paris-Nice with France’s Julian Alaphilippe retaining the leader’s yellow jersey. Orica rider Yates crossed the line 17sec up on Colombian Sergio Henao who gained a dozen seconds on Alaphilippe, who finished the day in fourth. Alaphilippe heads the general classification from his compatriot Tony
Gallopin, over half a minute adrift, with Henao 46sec away in their Yates made a decisive move on the penultimate climb 20km from the finish of the near 200km ride between Aubagne and Fayence.
 

Saturday’s seventh and penultimate stage concludes with a 15.7km climb up to the 1678m col de la Couillole, the highest finish in the race’s 75-year history.
