Stage 6 - June 26: Les Borges Blanques-Boi Taull, 184.2 km

ONCE keep the lead as Gotti wins stage

By Gabriella Ekstrm, cyclingnews.com correspondent

Alessio's Ivan Gotti has won the 6th stage of the Volta a Catalunya, that finished with a climb up to Tall. The former Giro d'Italia winner beat Aitor Kintana (Jazztel) and Aitor Gonzalez (Kelme), as the leader's jersey passed to ONCE's Igor Gonzales de Galdeano.

The 184 kilometre stage between Le Borges Blanques and Boi Tall covered three mountains, two of them first category. The finish in Boi Taull was uphill, and good climbers like Felix Cardenas (Kelme), Bobby Julich (Credit Agricole) and Ivan Gotti (Alessio) were represented in the six man break that went away early in the day.

Strangely enough, with 15 kilometres to go, Julich and Cardenas were no longer around. Cardenas rode in a long break yesterday, and can blame his poor performance on that, and Julich seemed to lack a bit of form. Even more surprisingly, sprinter Sven Teutenberg (Festina) still in the break, together with Aitor Kintana (Jazztel-Costa Almeria) and Ivan Gotti. The climb up to Boi Tall was 12% steep at some places, and it didn't take long for Kintana and Gotti to lose Teutenberg, who is quite a big guy.

Euskaltel took care of the front work in the peloton when the climb started, but they were soon overtaken by numerous attacks. Pavel Tonkov (Mercury) and Eladio Jimenez (iBanesto.com) countered an attack by Cesar Garcia Calvo (Relax Fuenlabrada) and by the time they were brought back, not much remained of the peloton. Aitor Gonzales (Kelme) launched a new attack, and it was a pretty dangerous one since he was only 50 seconds behind overall leader Serrano.

Luis Perez (Festina), also less than a minute down on Serrano, followed Gonzales, and they both kept on attacking even though they were brought back several times. At this point they were three minutes behind Kintana and Gotti, and it was less than ten kilometres to go. Igor Gonzales de Galdeano (ONCE), Fernando Escartin (Coast), Aitor Gonzales, Marcos Serrano (ONCE) and Eladio Jimenez attacked from the tiny front group with six kilometres to go. They were two minutes behind Kintana and Gotti, who still hadn't attacked each other. The road flattened a little with five kilometres to go, and it was here Aitor Gonzales jumped again. Kintana and Gotti tried to win some time on the flat part, but it was obvious that Gonzales was the stronger rider. With four kilometres to go, Gonzales was a minute behind the duo, although it was obvious that he was suffering enormously.

Kintana made his first real attack with three kilometres left of the stage, and he looked stronger than Gotti, even though the Italian climber brought him back. Kintana uses a sitting climbing style, while Gotti prefers to stand up and use much heavier gears. Kintana attacked again, but didn't get away. Gonzales were now only 30 seconds behind them, and gazed up the road after them. Kintana was clearly annoyed with Gotti and started to express his thoughts with clearly visible movements, with just a kilometre left to race.

Gotti responded with an attack, and Kintana made a big effort to catch him. Gonzales was able to join them when the pace slowed down right after Gotti's attack. Gonzales went straight to the front, and perhaps he overestimated his strength because when Gotti attacked a couple of hundred metres later he could not follow. Neither could Kintana, and the two Spaniards could do little but sit back and watch Gotti take his first stage victory ever outside the Giro d'Italia.

Igor Gonzales de Galdeano finished 19 seconds down on Gotti, and became the new leader of the race. Aitor Gonzales moved up to second place, ahead of Eladio Jimenez and Joseba Beloki.
