Astana rider Alexey Lutsenko claimed the biggest success of his career with victory in stage six of the Tour de France as Britain’s Adam Yates retained the leader’s yellow jersey.
Lutsenko left the rest of the breakaway behind on a tough climb 17km from the end of the 191km stage to Mont Aigoual.
Yates finished in the bunch with the other yellow jersey contenders.
Julian Alaphilippe sprinted at the end in a show of defiance after being penalised 20 seconds on Wednesday.
