Paris-Nice 6: A HUGE Betancur (but bravo Frank Schleck!)

The longest stage, one of the hardest, with several steep climbs. Amazing open stage, attacks after attacks. 
Frank Schleck also showed himself in front and finished in the main peloton, only 11'' from the winner. Geraint Thomas bravely defended his leader jersey supported by an incredible Lopez but must let it go in a breathtaking final where Carlos Betancur outsprinted the World Champion Rui Costa.
Vincenzo Nibali worked for Jakob Fuglsang and got finally dropped but in the descent he demonstrated again to be one of the best in the bunch.
Andy Schleck dropped again lost 5'12''.
