TDF stage 6

Euskaltel got through today's demanding 225km stage from Dinan to Lisieux without any sort of problems for once, and are now faced with only one remaining flat stage before the hills and mountains await from Saturday onwards. Samu was kept out of the wind and near the front at the crucial points in the race and finished with the main peloton alongside Martínez and Verdugo. Rubén Pérez and Txurruka finished up 48 seconds adrift, while Alan Pérez and Izagirre came in 2:23 down. Urtasun rolled in with the gruppetto at 12:26.

In other news, yesterday's crash victim Iván Velasco will operate on his broken right collarbone in Bilbao tomorrow. The out of luck climber was yesterday transported from Saint-Malo to Bilbao to undergo surgery as soon as possible.
