Tirreno 6 : Juanjo attacks again

The sixth stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico was signed by a big escape of thirteen riders. Among them Bertolini, Kiryienka, Lastras but also our Juan Jose Oroz. They got a good advantage but in the peloton CSC and LPR Brakes set the pace. In the last round of 15 kilometres they still had a small chance to make it to the end but they got caught up again at 4km before the finish. But with this great effort Juanjo is now leading in the mountains classification !!! He's only two points ahead of Mondory and Dion but with only one climb to go I'm sure he will grab this classification. In the sprint Freire won, beating Pozzato and Di Luca. Egoi Martinez was the only one who came in with the peloton, ending on a 23th place. Iñigo Landaluze lost a lot of time, coming in with a group 3 minutes down.
