Juan Miguel Mercado (iBanesto.com) put the numbers game to use in stage 6, attacking overall leaders Lance Armstrong and Iban Mayo in the closing kilometres of an animated mountain showdown. Part of a group of four at the end of the descent of the Col du Galibier, Mercado profited from the neutralization of Armstrong and Mayo, and the presence of his iBanesto teammate Francisco Mancebo, to escape in the last 15km for a satisfying solo victory. Mayo used a technical uphill finish in the old town of Briançon to nip three seconds from Armstrong, but the American proved once more that he is in complete control.

Using a move from Christophe Moreau (Crédit Agricole) as a springboard, Mayo challenged Armstrong once more to a mountain duel, and while his efforts did not pay in the end, he showed himself to be a worthy competitor in the high mountains on the Galibier. Mayo gained up to 29 seconds on Armstrong, who appeared comfortable as he chased the Basque climber, but was unable to close the gap before the summit of the giant climb.

As Mayo grabbed a few more seconds on the initial plunge from the tunnel at the climb's summit, Armstrong put any hesitation he might have felt after yesterday's crash behind him, and proceeded to put in one of his best performances on a long descent in recent memory. As fast as Mayo descended, Armstrong went faster, topping 80 km/h down the Galibier and pulling back a 31" deficit before reaching the valley floor. Mayo's move was a valiant one, but Armstrong was simply too impressive to let the Euskaltel rider escape.

How it unfolded

An early break of several riders, including Sylvain Chavanel (Brioches La Boulangère), Andrea Peron (CSC) and Ludovic Turpin (Ag2R), was in the process of splitting apart on the tough slopes of the Galibier, as Christophe Moreau played the first card among the GC leaders and forced the pace, catching Chavanel, who kindly offered him a bottle as he passed. Moreau gained a small gap on the yellow jersey group, enjoying a steady improvement in form since the beginning of the Dauphiné, but his move was too tempting for Armstrong's biggest threat, Iban Mayo.

Aggressive since his prologue win last Sunday, Mayo sensed an opportunity and jumped clear of the main group, which included a struggling David Millar. With his polka dot jersey of best climber fully unzipped in the heat, Mayo sought the draft of the mass of motorbikes following the leaders, and easily created a gap of several seconds on the yellow jersey. He steadily widened the gap to 16" as Armstrong tempered his own effort, reeling in the remnants of the early break, with only iBanesto's Mancebo ahead on the climb.

By the summit of the Galibier, Mayo's advantage was up to 29", and Mancebo was not far ahead. Fully committed to race to the finish, Mayo steadily pulled back Mancebo on the initial portions of the descent, taking risks on the narrow, winding road and uneven pavement. Armstrong, meanwhile, was in the company of two iBanesto teammates, Mercado and Pablo Lastras, meaning he was isolated and would have to work only for himself to chase the two leaders on the descent.

With a bandaged arm, but no mental baggage from his crash the day before, Armstrong let it fly on the descent of the Galibier, and stormed down the mountain, steadily pulling back the time Mayo had gained on the climb. Lastras was left behind, but Mercado clung to the yellow jersey's wheel and eventually the two chasers caught Mayo and Mancebo, who had joined forces at the sharp end of the race.

"Riding this morning from the hotel to the start, my body hurt everywhere," said Armstrong afterwards. "That's probably why I didn't climb very well on the Galibier. I never panicked though, because Mayo never really managed to escape. On the descent, I had forgotten about yesterday's crash and caught him again."

With Mayo neutralised, Armstrong was no longer obligated to set the pace, and the wind quickly went out of the sails of the leading quartet. As the American eased over to have a word with directeur sportif Johan Bruyneel in the team car, Mercado took the opportunity to jump clear, knowing his teammate Mancebo wouldn't chase, and Mayo and Armstrong would only watch each other.

The move was well timed and perfectly executed, as Mercado had almost a minute in hand with 10km to go. As Mayo and Armstrong soft pedaled, a chasing trio of Moreau, Lastras, and Cyril Dessel (Phonak) rejoined, following a flawless descent of their own from the Galibier summit. Mercado pressed on as the group behind swelled, and a larger group with third place overall Millar, who had struggled on the climb, was able to make contact and end the virtual GC battle which was in play between Millar and Mancebo.

A late flurry of attacks from Nicolas Vogondy and Patrice Halgand did little to disrupt the main group, as only a final rise on the narrow streets of old Briançon remained. Mercado showed no signs of weakness as he parted the crowds on the cobbled climb, winding his way to a well earned victory. Mayo used the opportunity to slip clear of Armstrong in the last 500 metres, but the American safely crossed the line with his GC lead intact, and his confidence unshaken by the nervous events of the previous day.
