2011 Tour de France Standings Update, Stage 6: Thor Hushovd Continues His Time With Yellow Jersey

Here are the 2011 Tour de France results from Thursday. Edvald Boasson Hagen of Sky Procycling won Stage 6, beating out Matt Goss and Thor Hushovd (who wears the yellow jersey). 

Stage 7 of the tour will take place Friday, and will be a 218 km flat stage from Le Mans to Châteauroux. This is among the flattest stages in the course, and therefore could be dominated by sprinters contending for the green jersey.

Here are the current standings.
