Stage 6 - Semur-en-Auxois - Bourg-en-Bresse

Belgian Tom Boonen takes the sprint victory
Cancellara enjoys what will certainly be his last day in yellow.
A heavily bandaged Vinokourov limps through today. Will he be able to attack and win the Tour? We'll find out starting tomorrow.

Today brought the last sprint finish before the race heads into the Alps. Once last chance for the sprinters to achieve victory. Belgian Tom Boonen did just that with a vicious sprint to the line. Tomorrow brings the first high mountain pass, which will separate the contenders from the pretenders. Stay tuned to see how the race will shape up.
