Festina's Christophe Moreau is just one stage away from winning the 53rd Critérium du Dauphiné Libéré, after he finished third in today's "Galibier stage" from Pontcharra to Briançon. However, Mercury's Pavel Tonkov still remains a serious threat at 1 second behind Moreau with tomorrow's hilly 125 kilometres from Vizille to Chambery to come. The stage was won by Spaniard Iban Mayo (Euskaltel), who had escaped with the other two riders on the Col du Galibier.

Today's stage started in the rain in Pontcharra with the first climb, the Col du Glandon/Croix de Fer (2067m) starting at 50 kilometres. That didn't hold back a lively peloton, with attacks starting quite early. Three riders, Philippe Bordenave (Ag2r), Jacky Durand (Française des Jeux) and Thierry Gouvenou (Big-Mat) jumped away after half an hour, gaining 5'20 by the foot of the climb.

Gouvenou crossed first, with 3'15 advantage on the peloton. On the decsent, yesterday's protagonists Stéphane Heulot (Big Mat) and Christophe Moreau (Festina) attacked, with Heulot making the bridge up to Gouvenou on his own.

Climbing the Galibier

The next climb was the 'double' ascension of the Col du Galibier, starting with the Télégraphe (1566m), before dropping a little way into Valloire (1430m) then climbing the rest of the way to the Col du Galibier (2646m). There were many abandonments at this stage, including Jonathan Vaughters (Credit Agricole) and David Millar (Cofidis).

By the top of the Télégraphe the escapees were caught, and Sven Montgomery crossed first followed by Tonkov. Christophe Moreau held his own and crossed the Galibier first, forming a small break with Iban Mayo (Euskaltel) and Tonkob. The three had 2 minutes advantage on the fragments of the peloton with 30 kilometres to go, managing to keep 1'23 into Briançon.

At less than 1 kilometre to go, Iban Mayo attacked to win the stage, ahead of Tonkov and Moreau, with Lotto's Guennadi Mikhailov taking the sprint for fourth place a little later.
