Christophe Moreau (Festina) has won the 53rd Criterium du Dauphiné Libéré, which finished today with a 125 kilometre stage between Vizille and Chambéry. The stage was won by Credit Agricole's Jens Voigt in a solo breakaway, beating Laurent Brochard (Jean Delatour) and Bobby Julich (Credit Agricole). Moreau and Tonkov finished 16th and 17th, 5'40 behind Voigt, but Tonkov couldn't get that single second back that he needed to beat Moreau.

The final stage started in Vizille with a fast tempo being set by the Festina team who were controlling for Moreau. Domo-Farm Frites took over for the first sprint in order to keep Swede Glenn Magnusson in the green jersey, which they succeeding in doing. He won it ahead of Christophe Agnolutto and Carlos Da Cruz.

Magnusson and Agnolutto continued on, and eventually a leading group of 10 formed which gradually gained time on the pursuing bunch. The race finished with 5 laps of a hilly circuit around Chambéry and by this stage, the peloton had already been reduced significantly.

With 30 kilometres to go, German Jens Voigt attacked and quickly gained 30 seconds on a strung out field. However, Moreau and Tonkov were more concerned with watching each other, and Voigt was able to increase his advantage to 1'13 with one lap to go, keeping it right until the finish.

Laurent Brochard finished second in front of Voigt's teammate Julich, while Moreau retained his 1 second advantage in the GC. The result augurs well for Moreau's assault on the Tour de France this year, after he finished fourth last year.

"Today, I answered Tonkov when he tried, twice, to attack," said Moreau. "I then went after him to show him that I wasn't beaten. At the end, I found myself alone, but before the team had worked well. I was wary of the rain, especially in the last five kilometers of this city circuit, with its white strips and paving stones."

Tonkov had the pressure, I just to control. I think I have reached another dimension because, psychologically, these last two days were stressful".
