No sour win for Kirsipuu in Strasbourg

Along the bucolic banks of the Ill river in bourgeois Strasbourg, Jaan Kirsipuu (Ag2r Prévoyance) won a big sprint today to capture Stage 6 of the 2001 Tour De France. The massive Estonian muscle man powered home to victory off a world-class leadout from his teammate Ludovic Capelle, recently crowned Belgian champion.

"It was a long sprint, and I thought it might be too long but we made it," said Kirsipuu in a post-race press conference.

Vincent Lavenu, AG2R team director told cyclingnews.com that "Jan's win was great for us because it was an overall team win, not just an individual effort."

After yesterday's heroic TTT win by Credit Agricole to keep Australian Stuart O'Grady in the Maillot Jaune, perhaps the day's events were an anti-climax until the thrilling sprint along the Quai de Alpes. Behind the hard charging Kirsipuu, Capelle's leadout man had done such a good job that behind Kirsipuu's surging rear wheel was utter chaos. Maillot Vert Erik Zabel was trying to pass Kirsipuu on the right, where he bounced off of Bonjour's Damien Nazon, while Tom Steels was hoping to squeeze by the Estonian Express on the left. But today there was nothing doing as Jan sprinted home to his second career Tour De France stage win.

(Steels was later disqualified by the Jury Of Commissaires for 'irregular riding' and relegated to last place in the main peloton, 160th across the line)

The day started under gray skies at Commercy, a "tout petit ville" in the heart of the Lorraine countryside, famous for its tasty madeleine cakes. Perhaps these were the same madeleine's which jogged Marcel Proust's memory, but the tasty pastry didn't wake up the TDF.

The break

"Peloton groupee" was the word on Radio Tour until Axel Merckx attacked after 45 km in Crepey. Perhaps Merckx remembered that Strasbourg has the best beer in France and was in a hurry to get there. The lanky Domo-Farm Frites man is a class rider and his move attracted some other big names; Michele Bartoli (Mapei-Quick Step), Laurent Brochard (Jean Delatour), Rik Verbrugghe (Lotto-Addeco) and Credit Agricole policeman Fred Bessy, who was along for the ride. As the break went off the front, ONCE's Santos Gonzalez decided to abandon.

Once the quintet grabbed a lead of 1', the chasing peloton relaxed slightly as 80% of the front runners hammered hard to stay away. But with Bessy not collaborating, the break Was doomed. With the lead at 3'00, Credit Agricole increased the tempo and began to pull the break back. New Zealander (with a French licence) Chris Jenner, the first Kiwi to win a TDF stage was doing a lot of tempo for CA and through the crystal city of Baccarat the 5 were still out front. As the break approached the Cat. 2 climb of Col du Donon, their lead was falling fast. Up through the pine trees and over the 727m summit past the big enthusiastic crowds of French and Germans, Merckx & Co still had 3'00 but the situation had changed.

The sprint

Team Deutsche Telekom had joined the chase, along with Ag2r, Lampre and Mapei. The sprinter's teams now could smell the break's blood and as the peloton snaked down the descent into the Rhein Valley towards Strasbourg, blue sky appeared over the hazy peaks of the Black Forest.

Telekom had the bit in their teeth and together with the other sprinter teams, they chomped up the break, eventually swallowing up last man standing Verbrugghe, who had gone solo with 10 km to go. The classy Belgian held out for 7 km, but then Ag2r Prévoyance had started their inexorable assault for the Estonian Express, Jaan Kirsipuu.
