Julian Alaphilippe powered to victory on the sixth stage of the Criterium du Dauphine, but Adam Yates continues to hold the overall lead.

France's Alaphilippe managed to edge Gregor Muehlberger in a photo finish with Yates finishing six minutes and 10 seconds behind in a group of the main GC hopefuls.

Yates stays four seconds ahead of Dylan Teuns in the GC standings.

“It wasn’t a full gas stage," said Mitchelton-SCOTT rider Yates.

"The three guys away were quite far down on the GC and everyone else was happy with what we were doing. On the last climb, we expected the race to be a little harder.

"It’s a short stage tomorrow and the day after, so I’m sure a lot of guys want to break away. There’ll be a long climb of 20km to finish with.

"I almost haven’t done anything like that this year yet but I feel good. It’s hard to say what will happen. We’re all still very close on GC.”

Stage 6 Saint-Vulbas to Saint-Michel-de-Maurienne, 229 km.
