After four years trying without success, Australian sprinter Graeme Brown has finally put his name into the winners' books in old Europe. Making the most out of the chaos that comes with a late recapture, as Jens Voigt's attack with 500 metres to go was brought back just in the nick of time, the 27 year-old New South Welshman showed a fast pair of legs and a clean pair of wheels to take victory in the fourth stage of the 'D-Tour'.

Second was Gerolsteiner's Stefan Schumacher, followed by Milram's Erik Zabel, whose third place coupled with three bonus seconds in the day's intermediate sprints moved him seven seconds clear of overnight leader Vladimir Gusev from Discovery Channel. The popular German also leads the points competition by a massive margin, 44 points clear of yesterday's stage winner Gerald Ciolek (Team Wiesenhof).

With the first climbers' stage starting tomorrow, however, 'Ete' Zabel's spell in yellow is unlikely to last long. In the last 100 kilometres, the peloton face the 2,020 metre-high hors categorie Kuhtai pass, before the stage ends with a a ten-kilometre mountain-top finish to Seefeld in Austria.

How it unfolded

171 riders left under cloudy skies from Heidenheim at 10:40 this morning, and although the parcours presented little challenge, rain and thunderstorms were predicted later in the afternoon.

The official start began 6.2 kilometres later at seven minutes to eleven, and it wasn't long before riders began trying their luck, hoping to make the right breakaway. Shortly after the 10 kilometre mark, Bjoern Schroeder (Milram) and Charles Wegelius (Liquigas) succeeded, and with the latter only 1'20 behind overnight leader Vladimir Gusev of Discovery Channel, the British rider assumed the maillot jaune virtuel (or whatever it's called in German) before too long.

At the first intermediate sprint (km 27,1), the front pair already enjoyed a three and a half minute lead, with Erik Zabel picking up third place and a one-second time bonus. Despite the relatively high speed of the peloton, Schroeder and Wegelius forged ahead, 4'30 ahead of the bunch after 52 kilometres.

However, behind them, an alliance of sorts formed between three teams - T-Mobile, Gerolsteiner, and Astana - and when the news broke, Schroeder drifted back to the peloton, while Wegelius continued alone until the 81 kilometre mark, where he found himself caught.

Order didn't last long, though, as a new trio consisting of Markel Irizar Aranburu (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Marcel Sieberg (Team Wiesenhof Akud) and Sébastien Minard (Cofidis) left the peloton's grasp a few clicks down the road, gaining almost three minutes by km 118.

On rain-soaked roads, the trio pressed on, kilometre after kilometre, but Team Milram were intent on chasing, knowing a recapture would most likely see their leader Erik Zabel in yellow by the day's end. With 15 kilometres to go, their break's lead was 1'10, and it was touch-and-go if they would make it.

Unfortunately for the escapees, their day away came to an end three kilometres from the finish in Bad Tölz, and it was Team Wiesenhof's Sieberg the last man caught. Lampre once again positioned themselves at the front, so too did Zabel - but with just under two kilometres to go, Alexandre Vinokourov (Astana) attacked, followed by Stefan Schumacher (Gerolsteiner) and Linus Gerdemann (T-Mobile).

However, with 500 metres remaining, the field came back together, just in time for one last suicidal attempt from Jens Voigt (CSC). With that over before it even started, Australian Graeme Brown threw his bike across the line and took his first victory of the year, beating Schumacher and Zabel to the post.
