Paid "Kash"

In the absence of two-times winner and regular hero of the hardest stages of Paris-Nice Alexandre Vinokourov, his fellow compatriot, close friend and now teammate Andrey Kashechkin won the same stage to Cannes as his mentor did two years ago. His final solo effort was extremely spectacular, so was Phonak's hard work in keeping the lead in favour of Floyd Landis, who is now one day from the first major win of his pro cycling career.

It wasn't a transition stage before the very hard final one in the hinterland around Nice. Jens Voigt (CSC) made it highly competitive from the gun. Phonak never had a chance to relax because the breakaway riders weren't too far down on GC, the highest ranked of them being Sandy Casar of Franšaise des Jeux, lying 3:51 down. Evgeni Petrov and Sylvain Chavanel were other riders to be taken very seriously. "Everyone was interested to ride for GC, but not me," Kashechkin explained. "I was far behind, so I told the others: YOU work!"

"No one really wanted to take the responsibility of riding," Casar described from his side. My goal was to gain time for GC. But we never worked all together. There were four riders from Cofidis, three from Caisse d'╔pargne but none of them wanted to ride. I had the idea to attack on the col de Bourigaille, that's why I asked Francis Mourey to go beforehand. Behind Petrov, I've done my best."

The Franšaise des Jeux rider was clearly pissed off. There was a typical controversy between French riders in the break. "Chavanel accused me of riding just for being the first Frenchman," Casar reported. "I answered him that I was already the first Frenchman on GC. This was obviously the only thing he was interested in. He's a little rider."

Chavanel denied having tried to become Paris-Nice's best placed French rider. He chased Kashechkin down, but he kept losing time on the Kazakhstani when the two men rode like pursuit specialists into Cannes. Laurent Jalabert still remains the last French stage winner in 2002...

"For 25 kilometres, I had another little time trial with Manolo Saiz's voice permanently in the earpiece again," 'Kash' commented. "With three kilometres to go, I remembered that Vino won the same stage two years ago, but that day there was a lot of head wind and today, there was almost no wind."

He was wearing leg warmers although the weather finally became sunny. "I like the heat," he explained. "And I'm still fat. I'm at 70 percent of my capacities for now. It wasn't my goal to ride Paris-Nice for GC. I'm here for preparation for the Ardennes classics where I'll be the leader of Liberty Seguros, but then, at the Tour de France, I'll work for Alexandre."

He seems happy with his move from CrÚdit Agricole. "Liberty is a very serious team," he added. "There is discipline and I like that. It's the first thing for succeeding in cycling. By us also, in Kazakhstani, we learn discipline at the army first."

The "Kash machine" is fluent in French, since he rode as a junior in Belgium before joining the Domo Espoirs organisation, later turning pro with Quick Step. He's now learning Spanish. "I learned more in one week with sharing a room with Aitor Osa than in Monaco where I go to classes," he commented.

He's no stranger to the rich places famous for their casinos. There are three of them in Cannes. But the Kazakhstanis aren't known for wasting their money. Vino took 'Kash' for help. "We're happy to be four Kazakhstanis in the same team, that's the other difference with my previous employers", Kashechkin said.

Landis is another man who can be happy with his team. Phonak defended his lead and they should be able to do about the same job again on the final stage, no matter what the terrain is. "Hills are always good for me and I feel good", a confident Landis said.

How it unfolded

Jens Voigt (CSC) was the first man in action, and he didn't attack just once. He managed to get a 1'30 lead when he was accompanied by Daniel Navarro (Liberty Seguros) and Rik Verbrugghe (Cofidis). They were joined by a group of seven riders with the spectacular presence of Tom Boonen (Quick.Step) wearing the green jersey alongside Aitor Osa (Liberty Seguros), Arkartiz Duran (Saunier Duval), Nicolas Portal (Caisse d'╔pargne-Iles Balears), Kjell Carlstr÷m (Liquigas), Samuel Dumoulin and Tomas Vaitkus (Ag2r).

As soon as the peloton caught the escapees on the descent of the C˘te des Leques, five of them persisted: Voigt, Navarro, Osa, Portal and Verbrugghe. Many riders tried to organise a chase behind them. They eventually formed a group of 19 riders at the bottom of the Mousteiret (km 67): Verbrugghe, Sylvain Chavanel, David MoncoutiÚ and Maxime Monfort (Cofidis), Osa, Navarro and Andrey Kashechkin (Liberty Seguros), Portal, Chente Garcia Acosta and Aitor Perez (Caisse d'╔pargne-Iles Balears), Voigt and Bobby Julich (CSC), Sandy Casar and Francis Mourey (Franšaise des Jeux), Yaroslav Popovych (Discovery Channel), Jurgen Van de Walle (Quick Step), Dimitri Fofonov (CrÚdit Agricole), Evgeni Petrov (Lampre-Fondital) and Thomas Voeckler (Bouygues Telecom).

The group held a maximum lead of 2'30. Mourey attacked prior to the first category col de Bourigaille, Petrov caught him and continued on his own. He put a 1'40 difference onto MoncoutiÚ, Kashechkin, Casar, Chavanel and Van de Walle, while yellow jersey Floyd Landis and the rest of the main bunch were situated 3'50 adrift.

In the col du Tanneron, the last one of the day, Kashechkin attacked with 25km to go. He easily caught Petrov and dropped him off. On the downhill, Chavanel also broke clear. The Frenchman was located 13 seconds behind the Kazakhstani at the bottom of the climb. He managed to keep the second position on the stage but crossed the line 1'06 after Kashechkin, who clearly won the man-to-man final duel. With the help of Ag2r's Tomas Vaitkus, Landis' bunch narrowed the gap and didn't lose 30 seconds to a group where Casar proved to be the fastest for third place.
