The expected duel between Tom Boonen and Thor Hushovd has turned in favour of Gerolsteiner's Heinrich Haussler who has put his feet in the restricted circle of the world's top sprinters in Roanne.

"Back then, my best win was definitely the stage of the 2005 Vuelta because it was my first year and I didn't know what to expect," commented Haussler after his win. "But now, given the competition there is in the ProTour, beating Tom Boonen here is also something that counts in my career."

The other top sprinting star Hushovd didn't realize there wasn't any train anymore for Boonen at the very end since Quickstep had lost Kevin Hulsmans because of a flat tyre and Gert Steegmans because of a broken wheel. "I was sitting on Boonen's wheel and waiting for him to start sprinting, the Norwegian explained. But it looked like he didn't have the best of his capacities. I got stuck behind him when the other guys came passed. I'm not happy at all with this result [sixth]."

The finishing line of Roanne was the sprinters' main target during the Dauphiné. Inverell-born Haussler who moved to a cycling school in Germany at the age of 14 made the best of it. "I was a designated sprinter in the team this morning," the Gerolsteiner rider said. "It's probably the best help I've ever had from the others because I've been used to it pretty much by myself in the past. Today I had four or five guys keeping me out of the wind and Peter Wrolich took me to the last 400 metres in the wheels of Thor Hushovd and Graeme Brown. I knew I had good form after three weeks of altitude training camp in St Moritz. It's a really good win. I was looking forward to it."

Haussler will make his debut at the Tour de France in London. "I'll go 100% for the Tour," he said. "It's really hard to expect anything. It's new to me. I've never ridden the Tour before. I guess it's very different from the Vuelta."

Being the man who defeated Boonen and Hushovd might change his status though. At Paris-Nice, he went for the king of the mountain competition probably without having the best legs for it and he came exhausted to the third last stage. He missed the end of the race when his team captain Davide Rebellin needed teammates for defending the yellow jersey that he lost on the very last day to Alberto Contador from Discovery Channel.

"I had big ambitions for the Classics but I wasn't 100% fit," Haussler admitted. Now he is. And winning a bunch sprint at the Dauphiné seems to give him some ideas. "I didn't see myself as a big sprinter," he continued. "I don't do specific sprint training. But even at the Tour de France this year I might go in that direction. I think Petacchi is gonna be the man for the bunch sprints this year. I can't compete with these guys already. I'm only 23 years old. I'm sticking my nose in and getting a bit of a sniff of what it is like."

He might get another one in stage two of the Dauphiné. "There are hills towards the finish," he added. "I'm strong right now. If we can get rid of the sprinters, I hope for another sprint finish [amongst the remaining riders - ed.]. In this case I have a good chance."

Cofidis should be working for it again. "The team has done a great job for me today," race leader Bradley Wiggins said. "We thought the sprinters would take the chase over with 50 to go but they only did it with 15 to go. We'll try and do the same thing tomorrow. I'd like to ride the time trial with the leader's jersey and why not up to the Mont Ventoux as well in front of the Tom Simpson memorial. I missed it last year because I was struggling too much. The way I go now gives me some good hopes. To defend a yellow jersey can change a rider."

For the first time there aren't any time bonuses at the Dauphiné, due to a decision by race assistant organizer Charly Mottet who advised to cancel the hot spot sprints because there weren't decent spots for doing it properly due to the numerous roundabouts. Otherwise, Cofidis wouldn't have paced in front of the bunch. Boonen was too close on GC – four seconds down.

With one non-starter, former world champion Igor Astarloa from Milram, the race begun on a high tempo with an attack by Preben Van Hecke (Predictor-Lotto) at kilometre six. The Belgian was quickly followed by Christophe Edaleine (Crédit Agricole) and Jérémy Roy (Française Des Jeux) but they got reached by the bunch at kilometre 14 after counting a maximum advance of 20 seconds.

Sylvain Chavanel (Cofidis) who was awarded the polka dot jersey after the prologue attacked in the col de Parménie (kilometre 27) and brought six riders with him: Sylvain Calzati (Ag2r), Grischa Niermann (Rabobank), Xabier Zandio and Nicolas Portal (Caisse d'Epargne), Rémi Pauriol (Crédit Agricole) and Frantisek Rabon (T-Mobile).

The bunch caught them in the last kilometre of the climb but Chavanel insisted for the king of the mountain price, so did Portal and Pauriol who broke clear in the downhill. The duo was gone. Its advantage reached 9'35" at kilometre 115. At half-way into the race, the peloton reacted under the decision of Cofidis who chose to protect the yellow jersey of race leader Bradley Wiggins.

The lead of Pauriol and Portal came under one minute with 22 kilometres to go. With 15 kilometres to go, Quickstep also came to the front and chased prior to being affected by a flat tyre for Kevin Hulsmans and a broken wheel for Gert Steegmans, which left Tom Boonen pretty much alone in the final straight line.

Portal and Pauriol were brought back with nine kilometres to go. Graeme Brown (Rabobank) led the sprint and he looked in perfect position for winning but he was passed by Heinrich Haussler (Gerolsteiner), first, and Boonen, second, at the end, while the absence of time bonus allowed Wiggins to keep his lead.
