Tomasz Marczynski (Lotto Soudal) took an emotionally charged lead in the Tour of Poland's King of the Mountains competition as the Belgium squad battle to honour team-mate Bjorg Lambrecht, who died earlier in the race.

Poland's Marczynski made it into a four-rider breakaway along with Simon Geschke (CCC Team), Petr Vakoc (Deceuninck-QuickStep), and Geoffrey Bouchard (AG2R La Mondiale), and then focused hard on grabbing as many KOM points as possible.

Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma), meanwhile, edged a three-way breakaway sprint to win the stage and moved into the overall lead.

Mark Cavendish made what the Dimension Data team staff called a “50 per cent planned abandon” after failing to start Thursday’s stage.

The Tour of Poland concludes on Friday with the 132.5km seventh stage from Bukovina Resort to Bukowina Tatrzanska.
