Day 6 is done

Athletes have stopped. Day 6 is over and the official rest period begins. Nicola Donini (ITA3) has pulled his Night Pass and can hike through the night. He is currently in 20th with 785.1km to go. We'll see how he gets on. A review of the field sees it has shrunk to 25 from 29. Athletes are spread out from Maxime Pinot (FRA1) at 559.4km to Gavin McClurg (USA1) at 808.6km – a spread of 249.2km. Word is that tomorrow is going to be good for flying – athletes are talking about a 200km day in the air. The leaders will be planning to fly around Mont Blanc, Europe's highest peak. It's going to be epic - don't miss a minute. See you back here in the morning.
