The stage started calmly with the riders getting some well deserved rest after yesterday's tough stages, and with this stage's climbs on their minds. The first climb was passed without any dramatic events. The first mountain prime at Unterer Hauenstein (36 kms) went to Gottschling (Post Swiss) ahead of Aebersold (Rabobank), Schmidt (Gerolsteiner), Boscardin (Post Swiss) and Schnider (FDJ). After the climb, at 36 kms, a group of fifteen, among them Andreij Tchmil (Lotto), got a gap of about 20 seconds when Mercatone Uno raised the speed in the peloton. At Niederbipp, after 60 kms only six riders were still up front: Dirk Mueller (Post Swiss), Jacky Durand (Lotto) Jean-Michel Tessier (FDJ), Daniele Contrini (Liquigas), Stefano Zanini (Mapei) and Volodymir Gustov (Fassa Bortolo). They were caught after 71 kms, in Riedholtz after some fast kilometres from the peloton.

In Lohn, after 82 kms, Michael Boogerd (Rabobank) attacked with Summer (Phonak). The latter wasn't able to hang on though but five others came up from behind: J M Garate (Lampre), Peers (Cofidis), Mori (Saeco), Delbove (Phonak) and Heule (Post Swiss). In Limpach (88 kms) they had a minute to the peloton and the gap grew, rapidly reaching 3.20 at 103 kms but it stabilized at three minutes until Mercatone Uno once again organized the chase. Later Polti and Mapei took over. The first fall occurred at 147 kms when Mercury team mates Floyd Landis and Henk Vogels both fell.

At the front, Boogerd, Garate and Heule had left the others behind and soon Boogerd was alone but also he had to give in at 164 kms to a smaller group coming up with Mazzoleni (Polti), Garzelli (Mercatone Uno) and Fincato (Fassa Bortolo). Later also Belli (Fassa Bortolo), Casagrande (Vini Caldirola) and Strauss (Post Swiss) brodged. In the last kilometre, Belli attacked and won the stage ahead of Garzelli and Strauss while Boogerd gets the leader's jersey.
