Simon Yates in the pink as Giro d'Italialeader

Esteban Chaves

The stage was a pan flat 159km blast along the Calabrian coast and it ended - as expected - in a bunch sprint, which was won by Sam Bennett [Bora-Hansgrohe], after the day's breakaway had been caught with 14km remaining.

And it was Bora-Hansgrohe left celebrating victory as Bennett latched on to the wheel of Quick-Step Floors' Viviani and overcame the Italian in the closing metres.

Some 26 seconds later Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) crossed the line to round off the podium and then it was a case of seeing how much damage to GC hopes the climb up Mount Etna made. The stage was a 159-km run from Pizzo Calabro near Vibo Valentia to Praia a Mare near Cosenza.

That extra boost is necessary, because most Earth helicopters would be completely unable to travel in Mars' thin atmosphere. After placing the helicopter on earth , the rover is going to be told to drive to a safe space to relay orders.

"I feel relieved", Bennett, who was second, third, third and third on stages last year and third twice in this year, said afterwards. "I had to freewheel for a moment because I had gone to early, but when the time was right I really took it on".

Britain's Simon Yates has taken the overall lead in the Giro d'Italia after finishing second on stage six behind his Mitchelton-Scott team-mate Esteban Chaves.

On the 15 kilometre final climb on Mount Etna, Bennett was stronger than a huge array of pre-race favourites, shining brighter than the likes of Chris Froome, Tom Dumoulin, Fabio Aru and Miguel Angel Lopez.

Joel Embiid Reportedly Upset Celtics by Leaving Without Shaking Hands
Redick was a stable veteran in the rotation and provided helpful floor spacing that helped Embiid and Simmons thrive. It's January 11 and the Philadelphia 76ers are facing off against the Boston Celtics in London of all places.

First, the riders will take on the summit finish of the Montevergine di Mercogliano - a 17.1 kilometre climb which is less hard than stage six's Etna, but is likely to still only leave the best climbers standing at the end, due to the length of the climb.

"It was a good first day in the maglia rosa, relaxed at the start", Yates said. A bit stressful at the final, as always, but okay.

Saturday's eighth stage is a 208km ride from Praia a Mare to Montevergine di Mercogliano.

As Sam Bewley comments when interviewed after following the end of the stage, "it's a long way to go to Rome, but things are looking good" for the team.
