Stage 4 of the Dauphiné Libéré shifted that balance of power back to the anglo's in the race, as Cofidis' David Millar finished second in the stage behind American Jonathan Vaughters (Credit Agricole) to take over the lead from Axel Merckx. The Belgian lost nearly 4 minutes in the 43 kilometre time trial to slip to 7th overall.

Millar now leads 1999 runner up Vaughters by 20 seconds, with Festina's Christophe Moreau hovering in 3rd at 1'07. In addition Unai Etxebarria (Euskaltel), Pavel Tonkov (Mercury) and Benoît Salmon (Ag2R Prevoyance) are all well placed mount challenges in the next few days as the race hits the Galibier on Saturday.

About his win, Vaughters said that "I thought I could place 4th or 5th. The course was perfect from the start, and the wind helped me because I am rather thin."
