Stage 5 - August 10: Emmendingen - Vogtsburg-Kaiserstuhl, 155.2 km

Gustov wins Regio Tour

Fassa Bortolo's Vlodymir Gustov has claimed the overall victory in the 19th Rothaus Regio-Tour, which finished in Vogtsburg-Kaiserstuhl today. The Ukrainian successfully defended a two second lead to Ronny Scholz (Gerolsteiner), with Cristian Moreni (Alessio) finishing third at three seconds. The final stage was won by Ruben Plaza (iBanesto) from Torsten Hiekmann (Telekom) and Thomas Ziegler (Wiesenhof).

The stage between Emmendingen and Vogtsburg-Kaiserstuhl was originally planned for 171 kilometres, however the organisers decided to eliminate the last local lap and reduce it to 155 km, because of the 40 degree temperatures. The aggression started early with a group of 12 getting away, but they were not allowed to go far and were caught after 20 km. However just as they were caught, Ruben Plaza (iBanesto) attacked, which helped create the winning break.

Besides Plaza, the group contained Antonio Bucciero (Saeco), Kevin de Weert (Rabobank), Thomas Ziegler (Wiesenhof), Tomasz Brozyna (CCC), Cadel Evans (Telekom), Ludovic Martin (Jean Delatour) and Torsten Hiekmann (Telekom). Plaza was the best placed in the break, starting the day at 2'16 down, and found himself as virtual leader once the break reached an advantage of 3'50.

Fassa Bortolo didn't panic however, and gradually started to bring the gap down over the tough finishing circuit. An attack by Ziegler, De Weert, Brozyna and Evans with over 50 km to go looked promising, however the remaining four did not give up the chase, with Plaza, Martin and Hiekmann all making contact. Evans was dropped, leaving six in front, all the time maintaining a one minute plus lead over the main field.

In the last three kilometres, the leading group exploded, and it was Plaza and Hiekmann who fought it out for stage honours, with Plaza winning.
