2011 Stage 6

Another rain-soaked crashfest. Vincent Jerome is hanging in there as Lanterne Rouge, and although he got caught behind in a split, finished with the final grupetto of 21 at 12:26 back from the stage winner today.

At the start of the stage he said (roughly translated): "My condition is stabilized. Now I manage to use my left leg. It will go better and better. The red lantern is anecdotic (legendary?), but people encourage much."

2010 Lanterne Rouge Adriano Malori of Lampre was in an unsuccessful breakaway, but finished in mid-pack and is 95th in the overall standings.

Five riders are out of the Tour, bringing the peloton down to 193.
