The short but tough 6th stage of the Tour of Switzerland was going to be Jan Ullrich's first major challenge in his defence of his yellow jersey. At the end of the 103.1 kilometre stage in Ulrichen, containing 3 category one climbs, Ullrich survived although he is not yet at his peak climbing form. He finished 16th, eanrly 2 minutes behind in the stage won by Polti's Eddy Mazzoleni who is now in second overall, just 13 seconds behind the German.

The race saw an early attack by this year's Giro (and 1998 Tour de Suisse) winner, Stefano Garzelli (Mercatone-Uno). Garzelli has not had a good Tour de Suisse this year due to stomach cramps in stage 4, and was over 10 minutes behind coming into today. He passed the first two mountains in the lead, but was caught on the last and highest mountain, the Furka Pass (2436 m).

On this climb, Mazzoleni went with two Fassa Bortolo riders, Dariio Frigo and Wladimir Belli with 6 kilometres to go. They managed a good gap, and Mazzoleni was working hard to try and get the leader's jersey. However, Belli was sitting on waiting for his teammate Frigo and the leaders lost time. Although Frigo caught on, the Fassa Bortolo twosome were not good enough for Mazzoleni in the sprint. Mazzoleni's teammate, Richard Virenque came in 5th behind former leader, Michael Boogerd (Rabobank), 21 seconds behind.

There are now 6 riders within 42 seconds of the lead, with two more serious mountain stages to come. Tomorrow is not quite as hard, from Locarno to Lugano over 170.7 kilometres.

Big time losers and out of top ten: Pascal HervÚ (Polti) who came in at 7.11, Mauro Zanetti (Vini Caldirola) at 29.10 with only one rider behind and finally title defender Francesco Casagrande (Vini Caldirola) not coming in at all.
