Esteban Chaves (Orica-GreenEdge) regained the overall lead at the 2015 Vuelta a España as he soloed to victory on stage six; his second stage win of the race after the summit finish on stage two.

The Colombian continues a remarkable Vuelta for Australian team Orica, who now count three-stage wins after Caleb Ewan's victory on Wednesday and two stints in the leader's jersey, as Chaves finished five seconds ahead of Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin), who began Thursday's stage as race leader by one second.
