23 year old Juan Miguel Mercado (iBanesto) made a very clear statement with his victory in today's stage to Lagos de Covadonga. His phenomenal ride in Vuelta a Burgos had nothing to do with luck. He and Oscar Sevilla laughed and congratulated each other on the top of Lagos de Covadonga. Mercado had just taken the biggest victory of his young career and Sevilla had the Maillot Oro.

The stage was fast from the gun, and Kelme controlled the peloton for most of the day. Before the start the riders shared a moment of silence, and some teams (US Postal and Cofidis) wore black stripes to honour the many victims in New York.

Kyrylo Pospyeyev (Cantina Tollo) and Serguei Smetanine (Jazztel) made the first real attack after 60 km and were joined by Domo-Farm Frites Leif Hoste after a while. The gap grew to four minutes, but the peloton's fast ride up the 1st category Mirador del Fito was the beginning of the end for the break. They were caught shortly before the start of Lagos de Covadonga.

Lampre tried to give Gilberto Simoni a nice ride over the final climb, but when Codol, Hunter and Camenzind were gone, more than 15 kilometres remained of the climb and Simoni had no intention of facing them alone. Instead it was Banesto's Dariusz Baranowski who kept the pace high, and at some places the teams super climber Jose Maria Jimenez had trouble following him.

With approximately ten kilometres to go, the very same Jimenez started to attack. He was brought back twice by Oscar Sevilla (Kelme) and Carlos Sastre (ONCE). US Postal had Roberto Heras, Chechu Rubiera and Levi Leipheimer in the front group, and Leipheimer did a remarkable job with bringing small breaks back. Riders like Fernando Escartin (Coast) Roberto Laiseka and Iban Mayo (Euskaltel) were clinging onto the back of the front group, and lost contact every time the pace got higher.

With 8 kilometres to go, Mercado surprised the others with a strong attack and quickly got a gap of twenty seconds. The chase was not organized, and the break wasn't really considered dangerous enough, until it was clear that Mercado was gone. Heras, Sevilla, Beloki, and Jimenez formed a new front group but they couldn't catch Mercado. Sevilla then attacked and got Beloki on his wheel. Jimenez was in trouble as usual every time someone stood up, but he always fought back.

With six kilometres to go, more riders started to catch the chasing group and the pace was really slow. Rubiera jumped away from this group together with "Chaba" Jimenez. They were quickly joined by Joseba Beloki (ONCE) and Sevilla, who has finally found his form. Sevilla put in a huge gear and left the others behind.

During the last kilometres Oscar Sevilla was the only one able to close in on Mercado, although Mercado was still riding strong. The distance between the two Spaniards over the line was 33 seconds, and that was enough for Sevilla to take over the golden jersey from his team mate Botero who lost 3.16 on the last climb.
