Colombian rider Miguel Angel Rubiano Chavez won the hilly sixth stage of the Giro d'Italia yesterday with a long breakaway, though Italy's Adriano Malori took the overall lead.

Rubiano Chavez was one of several who broke away 23km into the 210km and charged in front alone for the final 30km.

"At first I was just aiming for the mountain points, but then when I heard how far behind the group was I decided to take a risk and it went well," said Rubiano Chavez.
