Swiss rider Sven Montgomery (Francaise des Jeux) moved into the overall lead in the Midi Libre today with a powerful performance in the 5th and second last stage. Montgomery won the 170 kilometre leg between Rignac and Mende in a time of 4'09.02, beating Andrei Kivilev (Cofidis) and Iban Mayo (Euskaltel) by a handful of seconds. Former race leader Andrei Teteriouk (Mercury) came in 19th, 1'25 down.

The crucial stage saw an escape by Bonjour favourite, Didier Rous, who was away for large part of the stage. He had escaped with 8 others (Christophe Rinero, Paolo Tiralongo, Jacob Piil, Candido Barbosa, Frédéric Bessy, Gilles Maignan, Bradley McGee, and Patrick Jonker) after 35 kilometres, but took off by himself with 90 kilometres to go.

Rous crossed the next four climbs alone, with a maximum lead of 2 minutes, on the 8 man break, which was in turn 1'30 in front of the peloton. He had the virtual leader's jersey but was told by his directeur sportif Jean-Rene Berneaudeau to wait for the break. He sat up and put it into a small gear and rejoined his erstwhile companions.

Unfortunately, the move backfired as the peloton began to work harder, in particular Telekom, Festina and Euskaltel. On the second last climb (côte de Chabon), the gap was just 29 seconds and they were caught soon after.

As they entered Mende, there were only 3 kilometres to go. However, these were all uphill on the 14% slopes of the Col de la Croix-Neuve. Rous lost 1'55 on this climb as the rest of the peloton blew itself to bits to get to the top. The winner was Swiss Sven Montgomery, who rode Andrei Kivilev (Cofidis), Iban Mayo (Euskaltel) and Benoît Salmon (Ag2r) off his wheel to take a remarkable first ever professional victory.

Although Montgomery was feeling strong at the bottom, his team director Marc Madiot told him to "Wait, wait, don't attack yet" in his earpiece. When he was given permission, he went, "and I was very happy," said Montgomery after he had recovered.

Of the team's chances tomorrow? Montgomery said "I am a little bit afraid because my team rode so hard during the week. I estimate a 70 percent change to win in Sète."
