MEILEN, Switzerland (AP) - Gregory Rast won the sixth stage of the Tour de Suisse with a final sprint, and Mathias Frank retained the overall lead on Thursday.

BMC Racing's Frank finished in the main field to keep the yellow jersey and his 23-second lead over Roman Kreuziger of Saxo-Tinkoff.

Rast, Mathew Hayman, Alexandr Kolobnev and Bert Grabsch pulled away from the peloton early in the 115-mile stage from Leuggern to Meilen. The quartet finished more than 10 minutes ahead of the main field.

Swiss rider Rast perfectly timed his sprint finish in the final mile and coasted to the line for RadioShack Leopard, finishing 25 seconds ahead of Hayman. Kolobnev was third.
