Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain Victorious) continued his brilliant season by winning stage 6 of the Benelux Tour with a solo attack from a long distance, and taking the leader’s jersey in the process.

The Italian champion crossed the finish line 42 seconds ahead of a small group of pursuers led by teammate Matej Mohorič to complete an impressive 1-2 for Bahrain Victorious.

During a long hilly day Liège – Bastogne – Liège, Colbrelli attacked during the first ascent of the Côte Bois des Mointes with Mohorič and Marc Hirschi (UAE Team Emirates) 50 kilometers from the finish.

As the time gap that this group had accumulated began to drop due to a fierce chase behind, Colbrelli attacked once again 25 km from the finish and was able to contain the rest of the field.
