Ireland's Dan Martin attacked to claim stage victory on the steep finish to Mûr-de-Bretagne in the sixth stage of the 2018 Tour de France.
Philippe Gilbert of Quick Step Floors and Van Avermaet were among those prominent at the front of the bunch on the final climb, as was Thomas as well as Mitchelton-Scott's Adam Yates, but none had an answer when Martin - second here the last time the race visited in 2015 - made his move. He finished ahead of a hard-charging Pierre LaTour (AG2R La Mondiale) and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar). Martin's timing was perfectly judged and he was able to hold onto until he crossed the line.
"This is such an incredible feeling for me after so many second places at the Tour since my last one victory in the Grande Boucle", said Martin. "I thought, why not have a try? It makes this Tour de France a success for us already, and anything else is a bonus".
The pair are 13th and 14th, one minute two seconds behind yellow jersey Greg van Avermaet, and one second ahead of Dumoulin.
