Stage 1 - May 9: Pfaffnau - Tramelan, 165.7 km

Sprint bonus gives McGee lead

by Gabriella Ekstrom

Australian rider Brad McGee (FDJ) took over the lead with a second, when he finished second at one of the intermediate sprints of the day. Despite the efforts by Saeco, who rode at the front chasing the early breakaway byLaurent Desbien (Kelme), McGee snuck away and scored enough bonus seconds to become the virtual leader. Saeco immediately lost all interest in working at the front of course.

The stage was won by Fabrizio Guidi (Mercury) who won a close sprint with Oscar Camenzind (Lampre). The finish was passed twice, the first time with 23 kilometres to go. The final lap was very technical with a lot of climbs and descends, and the finish was located in the middle of a steep hill. David Moncoutie (Cofidis) went away right after the first passage. He was soon joined by Benoit Salmon (AG2r), Guiseppe Di Grande (Tacconi Sport) and Sven Montgomery (FDJ) who made his second break of the day. They were caught with about ten kilometres to go, and the big stars took over right away.

Race leader Savoldelli went to the front, and was followed by Wladimir Belli (Fassa Bortolo), Roland Meier (Coast), Laurent Dufaux (Saeco), Oscar Camenzind (Lampre) and Armin Meier (Saeco). However the group, now about 70 riders strong, stayed together until the one kilometer flag, where Rik Verbrugghe (Lotto) jumped. No-one wanted to take on the responsibility for chasing him at first, but others would follow when Lampre , thinking of Camenzind for the sprint, started to move. Gilberto Simoni started the sprint, closely followed by his team mate Camenzind. Fabrizio Guidi quickly got on Camenzinds wheel and made a perfect, if very tough sprint. Camenzind defended himself strongly and was only beaten in the final meters.

Brad McGee finished 17th, together with the first group, and could therefore take over the green leaders jersey from Savoldelli. McGee now leads the race a second ahead of Savoldelli, and two seconds ahead of third placed Dario Frigo (Fassa Bortolo).

Tomorrows stage goes from Tramelan to Vevey and covers 171.7 kilometers.
