Arnaud Démare (Groupama-FDJ) sprinted to victory on stage 6 of the Giro d’Italia in Scalea, livening up what was a deathly dull five hours of racing with a photo finish on the line, millimetres ahead of Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal).

The Frenchman came from behind to beat the Australian and take his second win in two days after a strong lead-out by Jacopo Guarnieri, while Mark Cavendish (QuickStep-AlphaVinyl) rounded out the podium after launching his sprint just before his two rivals hit the wind.
