Irish cyclist Daniel Martin won Thursday's sixth stage of the Tour de France.

The 31-year-old Martin, who was on his own during the final stretch of the 181-kilometer (112-mile) stage, clocked a time of 4:13:43, reports Efe.

France's Pierre Latour, of Ag2r La Mondiale, finished in second place, followed by Spaniard Alejandro Valverde, of Movistar, in a stage that started in Brest and ended in Mur-De-Bretagne Guerledan.
