Italian Ivan Quaranta clinched his first win of the 2001 Tour de Langkawi. The Alexia Alluminio rider beat a storming Jans Koerts of Mercury and Enrico Degano of Panaria in the last sprinter's stage before the TDL hits the mountains.

Quaranta had been moving inexorably to his elusive first win of the Tour with a fourth place on stage 1, third on Stage 3, and second on stage 4. A finishing straight clash thwarted a possible win on Stage 5. Funnily enough it was also on stage 7 last year that Quaranta won his first of the 2000 TDL.

The finish, at the end of a slow stage (average speed 40.88 km/h) featured a very serious crash within the last 100m, which resulted in several riders needing hospital treatment for broken bones and other injuries. Initial views of the TV footage suggests that Spaniard David Fernando Dominguez (Colchon-Relax) got into problems during the final stages of the sprint. Alexandre Usov of Phonak can be seen pushing the Colchon-Relax rider upright, and the next moment Usov himself was falling, bringing a few with him.

For several moments the peloton managed to get round the fallen riders, but then others at the rear of the peloton piled into the downed ones. As one witness to the crash observed, "there were bikes flying everywhere. An Indonesian rider hit the barrier and was lying there. Others were hobbling and picking up their bikes to struggle across the line".

The principal victims were Razali Sharulneeza of Malaysia, who broke his collarbone, and Fabrianto Fabrianto of Indonesia, who fractured his hip. Fabrianto appears to be the rider who slammed into the crash barriers. Sharulneeza even managed to cross the line for a time. Several other riders including Mobilvetta sprinter Massimo Strazzer needed treatment for serious injuries.

During the day, the low average speed played into the hands of German Roberto Lochowski of Fakta who managed a long lone break of 100 kilometres. Escaping after 52 kilometres he was only reeled in with 20 km to go when the peloton had begun to set itself up for the sprint. Lochowski eventually finished 129th, but in the same time as the winner.

The results of the stage left the leadership of the various competitions intact. Koerts took the yellow jersey of race leader for the seventh day in a row. Quaranta has now moved into second spot, ahead of Paolo Bettini (Mapei) and Gordon Fraser (Mercury). Koerts also leads the points competition, however Bettini, who is in second place will continue to wear the green jersey. Bettini's teammate Paolo Lanfranchi maintains his position as leader of the King of the Mountains competition.

Both Koerts and Lanfranchi are likely to be called upon to relinquish their possession of the the Yellow and KOM jerseys respectively. Tomorrow's stage 8 from Kuala Kubu Bharu to Tanah Rata (154.4 km) gives the peloton its first taste of the real mountains. Tanah Rata at over 1400 metres lies deep in the Cameron Highlands, an area of tea plantations, and tribes of indigenous peoples. The climbing starts at the 81.7 km mark and continues with hardly a pause, making it the world's longest climb.
