For the first time since the stage to Alpe d’Huez in 2008, one team-mate has passed the yellow jersey of the Tour de France to another team-mate. Simon Gerrans had two glorious days in the lead of the 100th edition but in the final kilometre of the 176.5km stage that finished in Montpellier, he watched on as his South African team-mate Daryl Impey raced ahead to 13th place and thus the lead in the general classification.

“Simon came to me yesterday afternoon and asked if it was okay for him to pass the jersey along to Daryl,” said Sport Director Matt White for Orica GreenEdge.

“Simon came to me yesterday afternoon and asked if it was okay for him to pass the jersey along to Daryl,” said Sport Director Matt White for Orica GreenEdge.

 

“I said it was fine. They’re great mates. What they’ve done for each other will never be forgotten. Simon won his stage with the perfect lead-out from Daryl, and he had his two days in yellow. For Daryl to be the first African in yellow, even if it’s only one day – well, it will change his life forever.”

It happened in the same city where a South African first won a stage of the Tour – Robbie Hunter in 2007 – and although the Australian stage winner in Calvi is out of the lead, the ‘maillot jaune’ remains in his team. While that GC order was being determined by minor places, the sprinters were vying for line honours on a hot and windy day when only one rider dared try to escape the bunch.

Luis Maté’s earned an hour of pain with his early attack but once he was caught, it was an anxious ride to the city that South Africans will remember well. Lotto-Belisol may have lost its general classification specialist Jurgen van den Broeck who didn’t start because of injuries sustained in a crash yesterday but the Belgian team is celebrating success.

André Greipel polished off a stunning lead-out by masters of the art like Marcel Sieberg, Greg Henderson, Adam Hansen and Frederik Willems. The German champion came off the wheel of his colleagues and no one had the power to get around him.

The stage
The sun shone brightly for the sixth stage of the 2013 Tour de France, a race from Aix-en-Provence to Montpellier. The wind was strong at the start and the threat of echelons would have been on the minds of the 193 riders who remained in the race. Jurgen van den Broeck (LTB) and Maxime Bouet (ALM) were the non-starters as they suffered injuries sustained in crashes in stage five.

The official start of the stage that featured only one categorised climb was at 1.19pm. Immediately one rider attacked… but no one else bothered to chase after Luis Maté of the Cofidis team – but the Spaniard was committed to his escape. At 12km he was 3’40” ahead. The maximum advantage for Maté was 5’30” at 19km and then the Orica-GreenEdge team moved to the front of the bunch. The average speed for the first hour was 38.9km/h. The escape was over at 44km. Quintana (MOV) crashed around the 55km mark but remounted quickly and rejoined the peloton.

Chasing sprint points: quick feeding…
After Maté was caught the peloton was led mainly by Orica and Omega riders but BMC and Cannondale also had a presence. Two kilometres before the intermediate sprint, Lotto moved up and the sprinters darted ahead in the final 500m. Greipel led Cavendish, Kristoff and Sagan to the line.

It is the fourth time out of five intermediate sprints that the German champion has taken 20 points. The average speed for the second hour was 41.7km/h. There were no attacks after the capture of Maté but Siutsou (SKY) led over the only climb to take one point. By this point, Bouhanni (FDJ) who has been suffering a gastric problem since stage five was 2’00” behind; he eventually quit the race at the 84km mark.

Quintana (MOV) crashed at 55km but quickly rejoined the peloton. Rodriguez (KAT) also crashed – at 82km – but quickly remounted his bike. The bunch raced through the feedzone at 60km/h (with the assistance of a tailwind) and it was Omega Pharma-Quickstep that was at the front. At 90km, Kessiakoff (AST) abandoned.

Cavendish another leader caught in crash
With 35km to go, in Lunel, there was a touch of wheels and Cavendish (OPQ) was one of the riders involved. He quickly remounted his bike and rejoined the peloton with 27km to go. Saxo-Tinkoff put four riders on the front and they were drag racing Quickstep, BMC and Sky to ensure that they had a place at the front of the peloton.

With 11km to go, Brajkovic crashed he stayed on the road for a long time but eventually he remounted.

Greipel takes a fifth Tour victory
The drag race of the GC teams continued effectively through to the 3km to go mark but then the sprinters’ teams took control at the front of the peloton. Omega Pharma had done a lot of work but they were replaced by Argos-Shimano from 3km to 2km to go, and then Lotto-Belisol dominated the front.

It was them that netted the reward they sought: a stage victory. André Greipel opened up the sprint on the right-hand side of the road and never came under threat… Cavendish was poised to strike but he just couldn’t come around the German champion who relegated Sagan (CAN) to the runner-up position for the third time in the 2013 Tour.

Impey takes the yellow jersey from Gerrans
Inside the final kilometre, the yellow jersey could be seen leading out his South African team-mate. Gerrans eventually eased the pace and it was clear that he was content to finish more than seven places behind Daryl Impey. The 28-year-old South African finished 13th on the stage (for the second successive day) and Gerrans was 48th – which means Impey took the lead of GC, 3” ahead of yesterday’s runner-up Boasson Hagen (SKY).

Impey is the first South African to lead the Tour de France and the fourth yellow jersey of the 100th Tour.

No luck for Cavendish
Cavendish crashed on a roundabout with less than 35km to go. He has abrasions on his right knee, left shoulder, rib and upper arm. On being beaten in the sprint, he says “I think there were a lot of factors — for sure the crash didn’t help.” Cavendish said about the effect of the crash on his sprint. “It took a lot of energy to get back. I can’t say for sure though, you know, Andre was really strong today and he deserved the win.”

“I’m disappointed, but you know we won the stage yesterday, and the morale is still good,” Cavendish said. “We rode strong all day in difficult conditions, so it’s OK. We’ve got another two weeks left.”

Andre Greipel – Another stage win in the Tour de France
While fans expect Cavendish to win in the Tour de France, for the other sprinters, its never assured but Andre Greipel still comes up with the wins and in 2013 he did so again. “The whole day was a really nervous one; with the wind everybody seemed afraid that it might split. But for me the sprint was a close one but the team was there for me and they supported me well for the lead-out and I think they were going pretty fast.”

“It’s nice to hear that [Peter] Sagan thinks it was impossible for him to win again against me. Yesterday I hesitated a little bit in the sprint but today I really went for it and the team did too and of course I’m really proud to win again – the day couldn’t have ended better.”

“I don’t know if Mark Cavendish was hindered by his fall, he was there at the finish. We are hard people: even when we crash, we are still there to do our job a lot of the time. Last year I also crashed two times near the end of a stage and I was still there for the sprint. I think he is okay because he is sprinting. He won yesterday and I won today and I think it’s good because it’s our objective to win stages.”

The green jersey Peter Sagan explained “today the main problem I encountered was the wind. The peloton was very nervous as everyone wanted to avoid crashes. I was also hindered by a problem with my wheel and by my back which is still painful since my crash on stage one but, in the end, it turned out well for me; I’m second on the stage and I keep the green jersey.”

“There is no shame by being beaten by André Greipel in such a sprint. Cavendish, Kittel and him are the best sprinters for this kind of finish. I cannot only stay safe to defend the jersey… I hope to keep it but I’ll draw the first conclusion at the end of the first week.”

“There is no shame by being beaten by André Greipel in such a sprint. Cavendish, Kittel and him are the best sprinters for this kind of finish.

“In the third week, when there’ll be some mountains, I’ll still be up there and I hope to gain the maximum points then.”

“Last year when people saw me winning three stages they had the impression it was easy, now everyone realises how hard it is to win… and I don’t win but I’ll still try.”

“There are still stages to come that are favourable for me: on the flat terrain I don’t have a lead-out train but I have team-mates who are able to keep me at the front. On the days that there is a break to chase, I know I can count on them.”

History in the making
Daryl Impey started the stage ranked second overall behind his team-mate Simon Gerrans. He had to finish just seven places ahead of the Australian and he would become South Africa’s first Tour leader. Impey was 13th in Montpellier after leading out Orica-GreenEdge’s sprinter, Matt Goss; Gerrans was 48th… and history was made.

“The last two days we’ve been trying to ride the sprint for ‘Gossie’ and with me being a lead-out man we knew that the possibility of me taking the yellow jersey would be quite good. Yesterday I talked to Simon [Gerrans] after the finish and he said that he really valued the support I gave him in the first couple of days.”

“I think he knew what would happen today with him leading us out and he never really had a problem with it. He could have just sat on and just done his own sprint but instead he was happy enough to let the jersey go and to give me this opportunity to wear this jersey for South Africa and myself.”

“It’ll sink in tomorrow but I think it’s going to be amazing to ride in the Tour de France as the leader. I’m going to be on a high the whole way to the finish and hopefully I’ll feel like I’m floating.”

 I’m going to be on a high the whole way to the finish and hopefully I’ll feel like I’m floating.”

“You always dream about this moment and there are many good bike riders out there who have gotten to experience it so I’m really one of the luckiest guys to get this opportunity thanks to the Orica-GreenEdge boys today. Obviously we were working for Gossie [who finished 15th, two places behind Impey in Montpellier] but Simon gave up his opportunity to wear the yellow jersey for another day and to give it to me. That’s magical.”

“Simon is probably one of the most selfless riders out there. He’s a great champion and he’s always willing to commit to everyone around him – today was proof of that. We were riding for Gossie today and obviously it didn’t work out but with me being the final lead-out man it worked out the way it has. I wouldn’t say that I stole the jersey, I like to think that we are sharing it.”
