Mattias Skjelmose escaped to victory on stage six of Paris-Nice, besting the two other members of the race-winning move in La Colle-sur-Loup.

The Lidl-Trek rider went on the attack 27km to go, joining Matteo Jorgenson (Visma-Lease a Bike) and bringing Brandon McNulty (UAE Team Emirates) with him. All three gained almost a minute on their general classification rivals at the end of the day, but the latter moved back into the race lead.
