Stage win and Maillot Jaune to Frenchman

By Tim Maloney, European Editor in Morzine

In July 2000, Frenchman Richard Virenque had a major comeback win with a Tour De France stage win in Morzine. Today, three years later, the 34 year old Quick.Step-Davitamon rider made an audacious solo move to not only win the stage in Morzine, but also the Maillot Jaune, with a 2'37" lead Lance Armstrong. It was a baking hot day in the French Alpes and Virenque had the ride of his life. "Now I can finish my career with no regrets," said Virenque in the post race press conference, but France's most popular rider is showing no sign of slowing down.

Virenque's Quick.Step-Davitamon smiling director sportif Wilfried Peeters told Cyclingnews after the stage that "Virenque is old but he's still good. He has a very good character...his goal was the Maillot pois but he ended up with the Maillot Jaune. Last year, I was behind him on Mt. Ventoux and this year, to be with Virenque was something special. Last year I was with Museeuw in Paris-Roubaix and now this! At first, I was telling how far to go to win the stage but after a while, it was about getting the Yellow Jersey too."

Virenque's Quick.Step-Davitamon teammate, Australian Mick Rogers was also happy the way things went today for his squad. Rogers told Cyclingnews that "Virenque said this morning that he was going to attack on the first climb and when he did, we already had Bettini up the road. Paolo rode his heart out for (Virenque) and now we've got the Yellow Jersey and the stage win in the Tour De France. It's a good day for us."

Still sitting pretty in second place on GC is four time Tour winner Armstrong. "I'm happy the way things went on this stage. Today was a hard day and (USPS) was hoping a small group would get away like that. To not have to defend the jersey tomorrow is not bad since we still have two more weeks to go.I thought the climb (Col de la Ramaz) seemed easier today than during the Dauphiné."

Armstrong's teammate Victor Hugo Peña ended his reign as Maillot Jaune today, finishing 148th at 24'56". The engaging former swimming champ, who will go down in history as the first ever Colombian rider to wear the Maillot Jaune, told Cyclingnews after Stage 7, "now after the great experience of wearing the yellow jersey, I'm here to work for Lance. I'm glad the way things worked out; that I could wear the jersey for three days was something special. But now I can go back to my real job."

Twenty-first on the stage, Jan Ullrich didn't share his thoughts with the media post-stage, but his D.S. Rudy Pevenage was quite positive about the Bianchi rider's performance. "Jan was good today and this is good for the team," said Pevenage. Ullrich is currently in 9th on GC, just 38" behind Armstrong.

Fifth on today's stage, Stefano Garzelli (Vini Caldirola) had a bad moment on the Ramaz climb, but came back strongly. "I was having some breathing problems from a tight diaphragm but the legs are good so I'm hoping to do something in the Pyrenees," he said. Garzelli had a visit yesterday from French physical therapist Price David who worked for soccer team Juventus. After his session with David, Garzelli felt a lot better and thought that his diaphragm problem may have come from the Team Time Trial.

American Tyler Hamilton (CSC), still riding with a broken collarbone, hung tough to stay with the best riders today and finished 25th in Morzine. The man from Marblehead told Danish TV that "I was hoping to be better today to help Carlos (Sastre)...now I'm just taking it day by day but I had hoped to be stronger."

Besides Garzelli, Italian fortunes were decidedly negative today. Alessandro Petacchi (Fassa Bortolo) started today in Lyon with the Maillot Vert after his sprint stage victory yesterday, but abandoned on the first climb after 53km.

Fassa D.S. Alberto Volpi disappointedly told Cyclingnews in Morzine that "We had hoped for better from Petacchi, but he wasn't good today." Petacchi's withdrawal means that Aussie Baden Cooke (FDJeux.com) took over the green sprinters' jersey.

Simoni dropped

Another disappointment was Giro d'Italia winner Gibo Simoni (Saeco), who finished with his teammate Glomser and Santi Botero (Telekom) at 10"21" behind Virenque. With a heat blister blossoming on his mouth and heavy legs, Simoni told Cyclingnews that "The team time trial really destroyed me physically. Today I realized right away that I had bad legs, that it was a going to be a bad day for me. I did what I could to save myself. The lesson I've learned in this Tour is that if you have one bad day, you're dead. Now I'm worried about how I'll do on L'Alpe d'Huez."

Simoni's disappointed Saeco teammate Gerrit Glomser explained post stage that "We kind of hoped Simoni would do better, but he cracked with 8km to go from the summit (Col de la Ramaz). Unfortunately I had to wait for him since he's our team leader and that was my job. I hope he goes better in the next few days. Simoni is probably still tired from the Giro."

The blazing hot day took its toll with the longest medical communique on this year's Tour de France. 13 riders checked in with problems at the end of the stage. One of the worst riders off was Kelme's Jesus Manzano, who collapse from dehydration on the Col de Portes, after being dropped by Richard Virenque. Manzano did not lose consciousness, and was airlifted to the hospital in Belley where he is now recovering.

Stage 8 - July 13: Sallanches-L'Alpe d'Huez, 219km

L'Alpe d'Huez is the most renowned of all Tour mountaintop stage finishes. Fausto Coppi won the first ever Tour De France stage to finish on L'Alpe in 1952, and in the last half-century of racing, many a career has been made with a victory on L'Alpe d'Huez. After Saturday's barbeque, Stage 8 will be even hotter, with temps in the mid-30's. Richard Virenque's Quick.Step-Davitamon team will try to defend his lead, while Lance Armstrong and his USPS-Berry Floor squad won't have to control the race. But two questions are still open for tomorrow: whether Armstrong will go for his second stage win on l'Alpe and whether Virenque's Quick.Step team will defend his Maillot Jaune. There is certainly no love lost between USPS director Johan Bruyneel and Quick.Step-Davitamon manager Patrick Lefevre so this might condition the outcome of Sunday's Stage 8.

Stage 8 climbs:

km 10: Cote du Megeve (9.9km @ 5.1%)
km 125.5: Col du Telegraphe (12.1km @ 6.8%)
km 149: Col du Galibier (18.5km @ 6.7%)
km 211: l'Alpe d'Huez (14.1km @ 8%)
