Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen outblasted his rivals to the line in a sprint to take the sixth stage of the Tour de France on Friday, the longest single stage of the race from Fougeres to Chartres.

Groenewegen, who won the final stage on the Champs Elysees last year, crushed the pedals with 200 metres to go to easily beat Colombian Fernando Gaviria.

"It's really great for myself and also for my team," Groenewegen told ITV after the stage.

World champion Peter Sagan, gunning for a record-equalling sixth green jersey for the points classification, took third place.
