Stage 7 of the Tour de Suisse was a transition stage between yesterday's short but tough mountain stage in Ulrichen and tomorrow's longer and harder stage from Locarno to La Punt. There were several climbs to be negotiated today, but none as serious as yesterday. Fassa Bortolo, who have been riding very solidly in all the races at the moment, scored another win today, with Marco Fincato triumphant in Lugano after a successful 35 kilometre breakaway.

Fincato attacked with several others just 34 kilometres into the 170 kilometre stage, with fellow breakaway mates including Michele Bartoli (Mapei), Markus Zberg (Rabobank), Chris Peers (Cofidis), Fausto Dotti (Liquigas) and Svein Gaute Holestol (Gerolsteiner). These were the only survivors after the hills thinned out the break, and the bunch behind started chasing. Their maximum lead of 3 minutes was reduced by Polti and Telekom, riding for Eddy Mazzoleni and Jan Ullrich's general classification.

However, they did not catch the entire break, as Fincato took it upon himself to attack on the Pedrinate climb with 35 kilometres to go. The former Mercatone Uno rider held off the rest, who were led home by Saeco's Italian champion (for the next week at least), Salvatore Commesso. Rabobank's Maarten den Bakker took third.

Fassa Bortolo are quite well placed to attack Jan Ullrich's yellow jersey in the next two days, with Dario Frigo and Wladimir Belli within 42 seconds (or less) of the lead. Similarly, Eddy Mazzoleni is only 13 seconds away and Oscar Camenzind 16. In fifth spot is Daniele Nardello (Mapei), 33 seconds behind the German.

The next two stages will see whether Telekom will go all out to defend the jersey. Spokesman Olaf Ludwig said that "if it costs us too much, then the price for a win in Switzerland may be too high. Our goal is the Tour de France. Other teams such as Oscar Camenzind's Lampre will have a vacation then, so they can give everything now."
