TdF Stage 6 Chablis - Autun

Today we finally got some mountains in the stage, Ok it wasn't a real mountain stage but it was not boring at all. We had once again an early escape with Sylvain Chavanel, Philippe Gilbert, William Bonnet and Giampaolo Cheula. At the second last mountain, a second classed hill, Bonnet and Cheula had to leave Chavanel and Gilbert alone and they went on untill the last climb of the day.

In the peloton there were a lot of falls, one of them containing Alexandrz Vinokourov, the favourite for the Tour de France victory, and he had to chase the peloton but at the end he lost 1.20 minutes on them.In the peloton it became a sprint with a mix of sprinters and riders who try to get a good classification. Pozatto came out as the quickest and won the stage.

For Euskaltel there were some good general ranking changes. Mikel Astarloza went from 11 to 7, Ruben Perez got the 18th spot and Haimar Zubeldia went from 90 to 49 !!
