LE HAVRE, France (AP) - Czech rider Zdenek Stybar won the sixth stage of the Tour de France in a sprint finish on Thursday, while defending champion Vincenzo Nibali of Italy was caught in a crash near to the finish.

Race leader Tony Martin seemed to cause the crash, and in the ensuing confusion Stybar rode ahead unchallenged to clinch victory, while Martin sat up on the side of the road and clutched his shoulder.

Nibali got back up and finished the stage, and then shortly after Martin rolled slowly over the line with three of his teammates alongside him.
