Simon Yates from Orica-Scott was the one to take the solo win and his first victory of this year’s season attacking form the reduced peloton in the final 20 km of stage 6.


He was able to soon build an enormous advantage towards his GC rivals with more than a half minute when he was passing through the 1.3 km final climb of this stage. The second place was a real battle with Sergio Henao form the Team sky and Mikel Nieve also by Team Sky. Mikel was the one to finally take the deserved second place followed by Richie Porte from the BMC team.  This stage was concluded by the overall race leader Julian Alaphilippe being led home by his teammate Dan Martin in fourth place.

Henao becomes only the second rider from Colombia to ever win Paris-Nice. Carlos Betancur did the same thing back in 2014.
