Stage 7 - November 7: Ouagadougou - Koupela, 136 km

Successful break carries Retailleau to victory

A French victory for a change today with Guillaume Retailleau winning the stage after a breakaway escaped the previously relentless yellow jersey defence of Team Marco Polo.

Eight riders formed the day';s first serious break: instigator Patrice Hemroulle, plus Laurent Zongo, Jean Ilboudo, Martinien Tega, Florian Joalland, Mamadou Ouattara Sie, Abdoul Salam Ouedraogo and Christof Marien. Hemroulle won the first Hot Spot Sprint and went up the road solo for long enough to take the second one too, but he was not strong enough to ride away in the wind.

Hemroulle soon had a slightly different group of seven companions: Mahamadi Sawadogo, Simon Ngopang, Driss Anezroud, Lucien Zongo, Jérémie Dupas, Florian Joalland and Guillaume Retailleau. These eight were able to stay away from the hard-chasing peloton, and on the line Retailleau out-sprinted Hemroulle and Joalland.

Joost Legtenberg remains in yellow.
