Freddy simply fantastic

Colombia Selle-Italia take Genting by the horns, but Barloworld assured of team victory

On the queen stage of the race up to the 1713 metre ascent of Genting Highlands, Colombia Selle-Italia did exactly what they set out do - their mountain-men Ruber Marin and Freddy Gonzalez dancing a tune that none could follow, attacking a select group of eight riders with just under six kilometres remaining and finishing with an advantage of 37 seconds over Dave Bruylandts (Chocolade Jacques-Wincor) and Ryan Cox (Barloworld), with Cox's team-mates David George and Tiaan Kannemeyer also doing superb rides to round out the stage's top five.

While mountains leader Marin won the stage, Gonzalez's second place has moved the petite Colombian into the overall lead, Cox (Team Barloworld) and Bruylandts (Chocolade Jacques-Wincor) likely to complete the final podium after tomorrow's 80.4 kilometre criterium in KL. For Colombia Selle-Italia, the only disappointment was overnight leader Marlon Perez, who blew a gasket on the climb's steeper slopes but fought back bravely to finish eighth on the stage, 2'30 behind Marin. However, with three Barloworlds in the top five, the South African squad has retained their lead in the teams classification, an excellent result for the young professional outfit.

"The most important thing today was to keep hold of the yellow jersey," said new race leader Freddy Gonzalez to Cyclingnews. "At six kilometres to go, Marlon [Perez] came into difficulty, so there was really no other option for myself and Ruber Marin to attack and try and get as much time over the other riders as possible."

Asked if the decision to attack was made between Marin and Gonzalez or Directorre Sportivo Gianni Savio, Marin said to Cyclingnews the decision to attack was made on the road. "When the situation arose, we had already spoken earlier that if this were to occur with about two kilometres to go, Freddy would attack, so we attacked earlier than expected," he said. "We really wanted another rider with us so we could move up in the teams classification, but unfortunately that didn't happen because Barloworld had three riders up there."

Notable rides were also done by: Roland Green (Canada), seventh on the stage, 1'36 behind Marin and now in the top 10 overall; Nicholas White (South Africa), eighth up Genting and now sixth overall, and best Asian rider Ghader Mizbani (Iran), ninth-best on the stage and tenth on GC.

"This is the fourth time I've come to the Le Tour de Langkawi; the last three times I've had some bad luck, but this year everything has gone well for me," said a happy but mellow Mizbani to Cyclingnews. "I'm very happy to have kept my jersey and be the leading rider in my classification."

An aura of anxiety surrounded the start at Menara Telekom in downtown Kuala Lumpur today. With Colombia Selle-Italia in the driver's seat, the South African teams of Barloworld and Team South Africa knew they had to attack if they had any chance of winning - even if it meant they would lose more time than they wanted to in the end. Others, such as Hector Guerra Garcia (Relax Bodysol, second overall, 36 seconds behind Perez at the start of the day), Dave Bruylandts (Chocolade Jacques-Wincor, ninth @ 2'01), and Kurt Van De Wouwer (Mr Bookmaker-Palmans-Collstrop, seventh @ 1'19) most likely knew they weren't going to win, and were probably hoping for a solid ride up the climb of Genting Highlands to keep their top 10 positions overall.

Not surprisingly, with a time cut of around 37 minutes for a 25 kilometre mountain-top finish, there were plenty of riders looking for the EB (early break) to get a head-start up Genting. Points leader Gordon Fraser (Health Net/Maxxis) wasn't one them: it was later reported that Fraser crashed trying to show Graeme Brown (Panaria-Margres) how Brownie cut him off yesterday's sprint finish, and although not too serious, the incident gave the Health Net rider something to think about before trying the same stunt again. Despite having his confidence bruised more than his body, the Canadian did manage to pick himself up off the ground and take second place at the first intermediate sprint at Sg. Buloh (km 17.4) behind Gert Vanderaerden (Mr Bookmaker-Palmans-Collstrop), who made his intention clear on securing his second place in the sprints classification.

Shortly afterwards, two short-lived breaks of 11 riders went clear, the first at km 20 lasting of all 1500 metres and the second after 27 kilometres, failing just as fast. With Colombia Selle-Italia ever-attentive, it took another 25 clicks before another group of nine followed by a chasing group of three slipped off the front at km 52, their advantage a maximum 1'04 at km 85 before being shut down just before the base of Genting, signalling 25 kilometres to go.

Once on the climb proper, Canadian road champion Dominique Perras (Canada) was the first to test his legs followed by Michele Gobbi (De Nardi), the Italian going straight past Perras with 24 to go and staying away for another 18 kilometres to eventually finish tenth. Five kilometres after Gobbi went, Indonesia's cycling hero Susanto Tonton (Wismilak) had taken off in pursuit but in vain, riding strong but never looking like coming close to bridging up to the De Nardi rider, Gobbi gobbling up the miles like a man possessed.

Back in the peloton, a select group of eight riders had formed with 15 to go, 2'28 behind Gobbi and 1'00 behind Tonton. In the group were: the yellow jersey of Marlon Perez (Colombia Selle-Italia) along with team-mates Ruber Marin, Freddy Gonzalez and Huberlino Mesa; Barloworld's Ryan Cox, David George and Tiaan Kannemeyer, and Chocolade Jacques-Wincor's Dave Bruylandts.

With Bruylandts and Kannemeyer really stepping on the gas, Perez and team-mate Mesa were soon in difficulty, and eight became four - Ruber Marin, Freddy Gonzalez (Colombia Selle-Italia), Bruylandts and Cox making the final cut with seven kilometres remaining. As expected, Gianni Savio's mountain-men Marin and Gonzalez attacked soon after and in doing so, created the race-winning move as Savio's pure climbers took Genting and ultimately the race by its horns.

Bruylandts and Cox fought bravely to limit their losses to just over half a minute, but the day was Colombia Selle-Italia's; Marin taking the stage and another mountains jersey and the leader's jersey once again exchanging hands within the team as second-placed Freddy Gonzalez donned the golden fleece, that barring disaster, will most surely be for keeps.
