Jumbo-Visma's Wout van Aert has taken the victory of the sixth stage of the Tour of Britain and is now closer to GC leader Ethan Hayter (Ineos-Grenadiers).

The peloton faced a rolling route of 198 kilometres between Carlisle and Gateshed on the sixth day of competition of the British race. There was an early breakaway that included names like Marc Cavendish and Tim Declercq, but after it was reeled in, a new one formed that included the main GC contenders.

One of the first riders to try from this group was Michael Woods (Israel Start-Up Nation), who could manage to create a 15-second advantage over the rest, but he was caught by the group that was pulled by Mikkel Honoré (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) and James Shaw (Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling).

On the last metres, Honoré started the sprint for Julian Alaphilippe, but soon the World Champion was caught and overtook by Van Aert and Hayter, with the Belgian taking his third victory in the current edition of the race, and decreasing his gap with the overall leader to only four seconds.

Alaphilippe sits in the third GC position at 21 seconds from the Briton of Ineos-Grenadiers, Honoré is at 35 seconds and Woods closes the top five at 54 seconds from the leader.
