The fact that Stage 6 of Volta Ciclista a Catalunya was the longest of the race at 197.2 kilometers didn’t stop the peloton from setting a fast and furious pace throughout the stage.

It came down to last 500m when the peloton finally caught the last survivors of an earlier breakaway, to set it up for a bunch sprint won by Davide Cimolai (Lampre-Merida).

Richie Porte and Tejay van Garderen finished safely in the bunch to retain third and fifth respectively on the General Classification. BMC Racing Team maintain the lead in the team classification, 1’07 in front of Cannondale.

Heading into the final stage on Sunday, Sports Director Yvon Ledanois said the priority is keeping Porte on the podium and retaining the lead in the team classification.

“The race isn’t over until we cross the finish line in Barcelona tomorrow so we have to stay focused and strong on stage 7. Richie is in third place on GC with one second between he and Dan Martin (Etixx-Quick-Step) who is in fourth place, so the two intermediate sprints will be very important in deciding the final GC order. We’re prepared for a battle and of course we want to see Richie on the podium,” Ledanois said.

Stage 7 sees the peloton ride 136.4km starting and finishing in Montjuïc in Barcelona, including eight laps of a circuit.
