Evans retained his 18-second lead in the overall standings on runner-up Tony Martin of Germany after the 102.3-mile ride from Champagne to Geneva. The 34-year-old Aussie also won the six-day race in 2006.

Alexandre Vinokourov of Kazakhstan was another second back in third.

Swift sprinted to victory at the end of stage, finishing in 3 hours, 50 minutes, 51 seconds to edge Oscar Freire of Spain.
