Robbie McEwen (Lotto-Domo) won the second stage of the Tour de Suisse in a bunch sprint, beating German Olaf Pollack (Gerolsteiner) and South African Robert Hunter (Rabobank) in Rheinfelden. McEwen, who missed the crucial move yesterday, called on his teammates to pull back a dangerous seven man breakaway that contained Paolo Bettini and Stefano Garzelli, among others. The group was caught with 4 km to go and McEwen was able to comfortably win the mass sprint.

Vinokourov out

Although his T-Mobile teammate Jan Ullrich retained the Tour de Suisse golden leader's jersey today, defending champion Alexandre Vinokourov came to grief on the finishing circuits, crashing with 47 km to go and abandoning the race. It was a hard blow for Ullrich, who was counting on having Vino with him in the mountains later this week, but fortunately the Kazakh did not break any bones.

The crash happened when Vinokourov hit a traffic island at 50 km/h. The 30 year old sustained concussion, facial abrasions and shoulder and hand injuries, and will have to rest for at least two or three days before riding again. Doctors are investigating the possibility of torn ligaments in his shoulder, which could put his Tour de France in danger. "Vinokourov plays an important part in our Tour plans," said T-Mobile's spokesman Olaf Ludwig on the team's website. "We are counting on him and Ullrich very heavily in France."

Although Ullrich was happy to have maintained the leader's jersey, he was critical of the organisers for what he thought was a dangerous finishing circuit. "After this fast stage I don't understand why the finishing circuit was not properly marshalled like it should be for an top level international tour. Alexandre became a victim of the chaos. Instead of being able to attack with me in the coming stages, he is now lying in hospital. That is annoying."

T-Mobile's team director Mario Kummer said that "To defend [this jersey] without Vinokourov now becomes rather tough. We will nevertheless keep fighting. We'll defend the lead for as long as possible."

How it unfolded

Today's 170 km stage between Dürrenroth and Rheinfelden was expected to suit the sprinters. But unlike yesterday, the sprinters' teams were more awake and were able to better control the stage. It was raining at the start and the riders were rugged up in the 13 degree temperatures.

The attacks began almost immediately, especially by riders who had missed the break yesterday. John Gadret (Chocolade Jacques) and Murilo Fischer (Domina Vacanze) were the first to attack, but were hauled in by the field as the rain continued to pour down. The attacks continued with Peter Wuyts (Mr.Bookmaker.com-Palmans) going clear after 6 km, but he had to stop with a mechanical problem.

It took 40 km for the break of the day to be established, as Michael Blaudzun (CSC) and Jan Boven (Rabobank) jumped clear, followed by Eric Leblacher (Credit Agricole), Markus Zberg (Gerolsteiner), Martin Elmiger (Phonak), Paolo Bettini (Quick Step) and Stefano Garzelli (Vini Caldirola). The seven men were able to gain an advantage, as none of them presented any threat to Ullrich's lead, and after 75 km, they had 4'30 on the main field, where Lotto-Domo was setting the tempo.

As the rain became more intermittent, Elmiger took the day's first Cat. 4 climb at Bürersteig (km 80) ahead of Garzelli and Blaudzun, with the field now 5'00 behind. With such a strong group in front, Lotto-Domo had to work hard to keep them in check, and by the first passage of the finish line with 54 km to go, the gap was still 5'00.

Elmiger took the day's second climb at Zeiningen Höhe (107.0 km) and then the third and fourth climbs on the same hill at km 134 and km 161, thereby securing the mountains jersey for at least a day. But the break was now being gradually brought back through the efforts of Lotto-Domo and MrBookmaker-Palmans, who had joined in the chase. It was on the first finishing circuit with 47 km to go that Alexandre Vinokourov's Tour de Suisse came to an end after he crashed heavily and abandoned the race.

With one 26.9 km lap to go, the Lotto/MrBookmaker chase had brought back Bettini and co. to within 2'10, and the chase was on in earnest. A mass sprint looked to be extremely likely as the group had just 1'04 with 15 km left. Elmiger and Zberg attacked the break and were joined by Garzelli and Leblacher, but the quartet was caught with just 4 km to go.

"It was a very strong group that went away on a climb with Garzelli in it," said Zberg. "The lead we wanted (6-7 minutes) didn't happen though and when the peloton came back to two minutes we knew it was done, we tried to give it another go but it was too late. I'm not too disappointed really. My main goal here is to get more form and then you have to go deep now and again. There can only be one winner. We'll try again tomorrow."

The sprint was chaotic as Alexandre Moos (Phonak) then Alberto Ongarato (Fassa Bortolo) tried to jump clear inside the final kilometre. But with 300m to go, Robbie McEwen hit out on the right hand side of the road and had a clear run to the finish, comfortably beating Olaf Pollack and Robert Hunter for the stage win.

Tomorrow's third stage from Rheinfelden to Vallorbe/Juraparc will present a challenge for Ullrich to maintain the golden jersey, as it finishes on the short but steep climb to the Juraparc.
