Peña keeps Maillot Jaune, tomorrow the mountains

France's third-largest city Lyon was one of the six original Tour De France villes-etapes one hundred years ago, and today on Stage 6, Lyon greeted France's summer pastime Le Tour with a tumultuous sprint finish on the long straight line of Avenue Jean Jaures, won once again by Italian sprint sensation Alessandro Petacchi (Fassa Bortolo). The La Spezia speedster said after his fourth win out of five sprints that "In Italy, we have a saying...there's not two without three and four comes by itself. I don't have great condition right now, so I was really tired today. It's been hard to recover and I was just hanging on the back on the last climb, but my teammates really helped me today, especially Nicola Loda who brought me up to the front at the right time."

With his fourth stage win in the Centenary Tour, Petacchi took over the Maillot Vert sprinters' jersey from Robbie McEwen, who crashed on a tight bend with 2 km to go. But it's not clear just how far the tired Petacchi will go with the green tunic in this year's Tour.

Accompanied by young Frenchman Anthony Geslin (Brioches la Boulangère), a determined Australian road champion Stuart O'Grady (Credit Agricole) showed his colours today across the hot roads of central France. Freckle face O'Grady is used to the heat in both his native land and his European base in Toulouse, but it wasn't the heat that stopped O'Grady and Geslin today, it was the hard pursuit by the sprinters' teams behind that brought the duo back after almost 200km away.

O'Grady told Cyclingnews post-stage that "I though one of us deserved the stage win today...we went early and gave it 100%. We thought we had a chance with 50km to go with eight minutes' lead but with 25km to go, it was down to three minutes and I started to wonder if our break would work. But we never had a bad patch today."

A philosophical Anthony Geslin told French TV that "after we dreamed of victory today, we had to deal with the reality of what happened...it's the Tour De France and there is so much at stake for a stage win that even though we had a 18'00 lead, the sprinters teams chased us down. Too bad!"

Victor Hugo Peña (USPS-Berry Floor) is delighted to keep his Maillot Jaune another day, maintaining for now his 1" lead over Lance Armstrong. Peña met with Colombian cycling legend Lucho Herrera today after the stage, since his countryman Herrera is in France on a bike tour.

The likeable Victor Hugo, a former champion butterfly swimmer and Giro d'Italia stage winner, certainly realizes that he is only keeping the Maillot Jaune warm for Armstrong who wants both the stage win and the Maillot Jaune on Sunday's stage to l'Alpe d'Huez. In an amusing moment today during Stage 6, Peña explained post race that "Today I saw that Lance didn't have a bottle so I wanted to go back to the car to get one - Johan told me the Maillot Jaune doesn't get bottles." Peña did so anyway, but only once during the stage.

With the mountains starting tomorrow, four time Tour De France winner Lance Armstrong will begin another major challenge on his way to possibly making it five in a row. With a poor team time trial that has put them behind the eight-ball on GC, ambitious riders like Gilberto Simoni (Saeco) and Iban Mayo (Euskatel-Euskadi) must try to attack Lance Armstrong.

Armstrong has recovered from a stomach virus he picked up at home from his kids last week and is ready to tackle the Alps. His key Tour title competitors like Joseba Beloki (ONCE), Jan Ullrich (Bianchi), Santi Botero and Alex Vinokourov (Telekom), Ivan Basso and Aitor Gonzalez (Fassa Bortolo) and Stefano Garzelli (Vini Caldirola-So.Di) will watch the American's every move as carefully as the predatory hawks circling above the Alpine peaks in search of prey. Saturday will be the first selection among the TDF favourites and finally, after a week of racing, Stage 7 will reveal the true contenders for the 2003 Centenary Tour De France title.

How it unfolded

As the summer heat continued in southern France on Friday, the Tour peloton rode from Nevers along the upper Loire River valley through the to Lyon. Aussie Stuart O'Grady (Credit Agricole) began his career on the track and earned a world championship or two as a team pursuiter. Today, after an animated, attacking start, O'Grady and Frenchman Anthony Geslin made their move before the first sprint in Devay, and rode the pursuit match of their lives across the heart of France.

While O'Grady and Geslin pounded away in the 32 degree heat along the picturesque parcours, through the Charolais beef cattle region of Saone-Et-Loire, through the southern tip of the noted Beaujolais wine region and finally down into the Rhone River valley to Lyon, their lead ballooned to 18'05" after 82km of racing. As the Ag2r, Fassa and Lotto chase powered away, their advantage began to diminish. With 50km to go, the duo had an 8'00 lead but it wasn't enough. With 25km to go, O'Grady & Geslin were down to 3'00 and as they crossed the Rhone River into Lyon, the peloton were closing down fast. With 500m to ride, the Aussie/French duo was caught for good. Petacchi uncorked another great sprint for his fourth TDF stage bouquet.

Stage 7 - July 12: Lyons-Morzine, 230.5 km

With the first mountains looming in the distance east of Lyon, tension will be high at the start of Saturday's Stage 7. Finally, the mountains begin! This is a long, tough stage and there should be an early break, but with the hard 14.3km climb up the Col de la Ramaz with 40km to go, this is where the selection will happen among the favourites. Expect a 20 rider group of Tour favourites to contest a tight sprint on the narrow roads of the ski resort of Morzine-Avoriaz.

Stage 7 climbs:

km 56: Col De Portes (14.8km@5.5%)
km 113.5: Cote du Mont des Princes (6km@7%)
km 140.5: Cote de Cruseilles (8.5km@4.2%)
km 205: Col de la Ramaz (14.3km9@6.9%)
km 218.5: Cote des Gets (4.2km@4.6%)}
