Bradley McGee's road apprenticeship with La Francaise des Jeux has slowly but surely been bearing fruit for the young Australian who made his mark on the track. Always a noted time trialist (especially over short distances), he overcame the entire peloton today to win the bunch sprint into Laissac at the end of the fourth stage. Meanwhile, Khazakh Andrei Teteriuk (Mercury) finished safely in the bunch to keep hold of the yellow leader's jersey.

McGee's second place in yesterday's Montpellier time trial did not seem to tire him, and he climbed both first category mountains today with the leaders. The day's primary attacker was Anthony Langella (Credit Agricole), who left the peloton after 27 kilometres to gain a maximum advantage of 15'14 by the foot of the Col de Jalcreste (km 90). This was reduced to 4'02 at the summit of the Col de Cabrunas (km 147) under the impetus of Euskaltel, but the peloton remained intact.

With 44 kilometres to go, Langella was caught after 138 kilometres by himself. Already by this stage, McGee had shown himself to be one of the strongest in the group, going for the intermediate sprints whenever they were on offer.

At 25 kilometres to go, Benoît Salmon attacked, gaining 43 seconds over the next 15 kilometres. With 5 km to go, he was caught by three others, and the rest of the peloton followed soon after. 98 riders arrived to contest the sprint, and McGee was the quickest of them all on the uphill sprint, beating Nicola Loda (Fassa Bortolo, now points leader) and Robert Hunter (Lampre), who is finding his legs again after his early season was written off.

"I who am a specialist against the clock, did not win on Thursday in Montpellier," he said. "On the other hand, today where I was not, I won it."

"Marc Madiot said to me that if I felt good, I could have a go. I would have liked to have taken the leader's jersey, but it is not so bad. Loda attacked too early, and I could squeeze around him in the last 100 metres."
