Gino Mäder (Bahrain Victorious) has taken the victory of the sixth stage in the Giro d'Italia, Attila Valter has taken the GC lead.

The sixth stage of the Italian grand tour was 160 kilometres long and took the pack between Grotte di Frasassi and Ascoli Piceno over a route that feautred one climb of the third category and two of the second category, including the mountain finish. A group of six riders formed the escape of the day and included riders like Gino Mäder, Bauke Mollema, Matej Mohoric and Dario Cataldo.

Meanwhile, Ineos took the lead of the pack to control everything for their leader Egan Bernal. In the last climb of the day, the favourites' group got closer to the escapees.

With three kilometres to go and as he remained in front only with Mollema and Cataldo, Mäder attacked and took the victory of the stage while in the pack Bernal made a move and Remco Evenepoel, Dan Martin and Giulio Ciccone stayed at his wheel, and all of them got to the chasers' group.

Mäder crossed the finish line in the first position and Attila Valter (Groupama-FDJ) took the lead of the General Classification. Evenepoel is now in the second overall position at eleven seconds from the leader and Bernal is third at 16 seconds.
