South African sprinter Robert Hunter (Rabobank) has pulled off an almost carbon copy of his victory in stage 3, winning the fifth stage after breaking away from his two companions, Murilo Fischer and Michael Blaudzun, in the final uphill kilometres. Hunter again profited from the fact that he was too far down on GC to threaten the leaders, and together with his breakaway companions was able to build up enough of a buffer to ensure they stayed clear of the peloton until the finish.

"Obviously I'm very happy, but normally a sprinter doesn't win a stage like this," Hunter told Swiss TV post-stage. "Winning in a sprint is so different, it takes so much concentration of the whole team. In an escape with three you use a lot more energy. I wanted to peak for Germany and Switzerland and then take it a bit easier. I don't know yet if I'll be selected for the Tour, but I want to focus on the Olympics."

The front part of the bunch in Adelboden arrived 4'30 after Hunter, with Fassa Bortolo's Kim Kirchen taking fourth place ahead of Fabian Jeker (Saunier Duval) and Georg Totschnig (Gerolsteiner). Race leader Jan Ullrich finished 11th in the same time, and will wear the golden leader's jersey going into tomorrow's toughest mountain stage.

How it unfolded

Today's stage from Bätterkinden to Adelboden over 162 km was the second uphill finish in this year's Tour de Suisse, with the final 20 kilometres being virtually all climbing, reaching 1368m altitude. The weather at the start was wet again, and 129 riders left Bätterkinden in rain jackets. A tailwind helped keep the speed high and the first successful attacker was Bert Hiemstra (Chocolade Jacques), who managed a 1'21 lead before he was stopped by a train crossing, which cost him 30 seconds of his lead.

Hiemstra was caught by the peloton after 16 km, prompting a new round of attacks. After 37 km, Robert Hunter (Rabobank), Murilo Fischer (Domina Vacanze) and Michael Blaudzun (Team CSC) had managed to gain 40 seconds, and the break of the day was established. None of the riders were a threat to Ullrich or the other GC riders, so T-Mobile and Saunier Duval were content to set a steady tempo as the rain continued to come down.

With 100 km to go, the gap to the leaders was five minutes, with the average speed an impressive 47 km/h at this point. The advantage continued to grow until it reached 10 minutes with 76 km to go, at which point T-Mobile/Saunier Duval lifted their pace as Hunter had started the day only 14'22 behind Ullrich. At 55 km to go, the gap was a steady 10'34, and hovered around the 10 minute mark until the leaders reached the last climb.

Hunter won both of the day's Postfinance sprints in Reutigen (127.2 km) and Frutigen (146.2 km), building a big lead in that competition. Meanwhile Michael Blaudzun won the Cat. 4 climb of Höhe "Gürbebrücke" (km 116), and together with his second place on the Adelboden climb, moved into second overall in the mountains competition behind Martin Elmiger (Phonak).

Quick.Step-Davitamon began to help T-Mobile in the chase, and the gap finally started to come down to under nine minutes with 24 km to go. But it was too late to catch the leaders. Unfortunately with 16 km to go there was a crash in the peloton, bringing down Gerolsteiner's Gianni Faresin and Saeco's Juan Fuentes Angullo. Faresin had to abandon, continuing the bad run of luck for the German teams in the Tour de Suisse.

Hunter, Blaudzun and Fischer still had 7'30 of their lead intact with 12 km to go, and it was clear that the winner of the stage would come from this group. With 6 km to go, Robert Hunter put in a powerful acceleration that the others couldn't match, and quickly increased his advantage over the steep final kilometres to cross the line 35 seconds clear of Fischer and Blaudzun.

In the peloton, no-one was able to successfully attack gain an advantage on GC - even though they tried. Ullrich chased down several attempts and the front group of 18 riders came in together, with smaller groups following at various intervals.

The situation could well change tomorrow with the sixth stage between Frutigen and Linthal over 185 km, containing both the Sustenpass (2224m) and Klausenpass (1848m). The climbers will have to use this stage to gain an advantage over Ullrich, who will have the upper hand in Sunday's time trial.
