Stage 6 - June 21: Molins De Rei - Vallvidrera (Barcelona), ITT, 13.1 Km

Pecharroman storms to lead

The Spanish revelation of this season, José Antonio Pecharroman (Paternina-Costa del Almeria) has all but won the Volta a Catalunya, after a powerful ride in the 13.1 uphill time trial today between Molins De Rei and Vallvidrera in Barcelona. Pecharroman, starting second last, recorded a time of 21'49 to average 36 km/h on the tough course, beating race leader Roberto Heras (USPS) by 52 seconds, with Telekom's Santi Botero taking third at 58 seconds. Pecharroman only needed 9 seconds to claim the leader's jersey from Heras today, thus he goes into tomorrow's final stage with a comfortable advantage.

Pecharroman (25) is certainly enjoying a purple patch of form at the moment, winning the Euskal Bizikleta two weeks ago and beating the likes of Francesco Casagrande and Joseba Beloki. He is an attacking climber who can time trial very well, and will be interesting to watch in future. He is currently in his fourth season with Costa de Almeria, having turned pro in 2000.

The early leader today was Santiago Botero, who with a time of 22'47 showed that his time trialing abilities are approaching the right level for the Tour, even if his climbing is definitely not at 100 percent. Botero had to wait until Pecharroman set off before his time was obliterated by the young Spaniard, who caught and passed Santi Blanco who had started 2 minutes in front of him.

With Pecharroman on top of the leaderboard, Heras knew what he had to do but came up too short, losing 37 seconds at the 8 kilometre time check and 52 seconds by the finish. Heras struggled while Pecharroman flew, and that was the difference at the end although Heras could still be satisfied with second in the stage.

Tomorrow's final stage is only 128 kilometres between Sant Joan Despi and Barcelona. It contains four lesser category climbs, and shouldn't present any problems for Jose Antonio Pecharroman and his team to hold onto the leader's jersey.
