Havana, July 30 (RHC)-- Cuban cyclist Arlenis Sierra was the best of the Movistar Team club in Le Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift, during the sixth stage, disputed by the best female riders in the world in 129.3 kilometers (km) from Saint-dié-des-Vosges to Rosheim.

The multiple Pan American champion was placed 11th, after crossing the finish line at the first finish, with 3:09:26 hours, the same time as the winner, the Dutch Marianne Vos.

The stellar Vos, multiple Olympic and world title holder in road, track and cyclo-cross, consolidated her dominance in the general classification, with an accumulated 19:30:14 hours, in a table where Sierra improved four places and placed 26th, 5:46 minutes behind the legendary Dutchwoman.

Sierra, a 29-year-old from Manzanillo, has maintained her progression throughout the six days of the demanding race, despite challenges such as the mountains and dirt sections, as well as falls in the peloton.

In the Tour, the Cuban has also excelled in the collective work in terms of the optimal result for the leader of her team, the Dutch Olympic and world champion Annemiek van Vleuten, an effort in which the blue formation has one less member, after the injuries suffered by "the Danish rocket", Emma Noorsgaard, in the massive fall of the previous day.

Sierra, together with the Spanish Sheila Gutiérrez, the Colombian Paula Patiño and the French Aude Bianic maintained the solidity, thus, the best positioned for Movistar Team in the general table is Van Vleuten, in the eighth place.

The Tour, one of the most important road cycling races, will culminate tomorrow, Sunday, after 1,033 km, which will be contested by 24 multinational teams.
