    Giro Stage 6: Mola di Bari - Margherita di Savoia

    169 flat kilometres. One for the sprinters.
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    Smooth for Cavendish. OPQ with their act together for once.

    I haven't paid the best attention, but does Nacer Bouhanni beat his bars and look around for somebody to blame at the end of every stage?

    Oh, and what the F, Argos? A little too excited there? Next time maybe think about baseball for another 500 meters.

    Nacer was a boxer in his early years.
    Would imagine he's pretty intense during the run-up.

    Very fast pace those last 20k.
    Cav played it perfectly and comes through once again.
    Was that Steegman's as his last guy? Brilliant.

    So when he crosses paths with Farrar and get's crashed out they can have a go. Nacer will destroy him and get booted and we can be rid of them both.

    finally! stage 7 is upon us. this looks like a little barnburner of a stage and probably one that will find a few gc guys chasing/caught out of place when the multiple attacks go.
    should be a difficult day in the saddle for everyone.

    Only vid I saw of the finish of Stage 6 was a bad clip from Italian TV. It was shot from a poor angle and it was hard to see the leadout well.

    It is amazing, though - the whole peloton was there and the race was there for a bunch of teams to grab. But Cav got to the front of the front, just like always.

    Nacer did get blocked off pretty bad in fairness. And he was first to try to calm the argument developing between Robbie Hunter and the sprinter from Androni
