Confident Rogers clinches the overall

Another stage for Tesar

By Giana Roberge, team Saturn

The final stage of the Tour de Beauce proved to be one of the hardest so far in this tour. Nevertheless, Mapei's Michael Rogers and his team had the reserves to defend his yellow jersey and finish first overall. The course was two big laps on a very hilly 64 kilometer circuit then three laps on a 5.5 kilometer hilly finishing circuit. The fireworks went off right from the gun with Saturn's Eric Wohlberg and Chris Fisher spearheading a seven man breakaway which was designed to put early pressure on Mapei. The break gained a maximum of just over 1 minute before it came back together over the first hard climb of two kilometers at a 10-15 percent grade.

Other small non-GC breaks were allowed some rope over the duration of the race but with every hill the gaps were closing and the field was getting whittled down until coming into the finishing circuit the front group was already down to 40 riders. The first time up the finishing circuit's hills decimated the remaining field and continued to do serious damage until there were only 20 or so left in the front. Every breakaway attempt was thwarted by a now-confident Rogers who was not going let anything spoil his day.

Coming into the screaming downhill finish approach everything came together and Lubor Tesar of Nurnberger showed off his excellent form again by winning the stage easily over an impressive Phil Zajicek of Mercury and Matt Decanio of Prime Alliance. Saturn's Wohlberg, Tim Johnson and Soren Petersen were right behind in 5th, 7th and 9th respectively. With all the top overall GC men finishing in this front group there were no changes in the top 15 overall.

Stage 7 - June 23: Saint-Georges - Saint-Georges, 143 km
