Racing News for 7/13/01+ TOUR DE FRANCE

STAGE 6: Estonian Jaan Kirsipuu (AG2R) was the fastest in the bunch sprint to take the sixth stage, while Australian Stuart O'Grady remains one more day in yellow. The stage was far from a rest day after yesterday’s team time
trial, since there were attacks almost from the start. The “attack of the day” came at km 44 when Axel Merckx (Domo) took off and was joined by Michele Bartoli (Mapei), Laurent Brochard (Delatour), Rik Verbrughe (Lotto)
& Frederic Bessy (Credit Agricole), making it a dangerous break. The quintet opened and maintained a 3 minute gap, since they all cooperated, except for Bessy, who was riding as policeman for O’Grady. Behind, Credit Agricole led
the peloton to maintain the break at a sensible distance. With 35 kms to go, the advantage remained at 2:43, with Bartoli sparking things up in the lead group. It would be a valiant effort, but the longest breakaway of this
edition of the Tour would come to an end in the last 30 kms. With the peloton back together it was up to the sprinters to divvy-up the top placings amongst themselves. Kirsipuu would take the long sprint to the line, making it his 13th win of the season and the 88th of his career.

Tomorrow’s seventh stage will cover 162.5 kms between Strasbourg and Colmar.
The race profile includes three category 3 climbs and two category 2.

Cascade Cycling Classic
Bend, OR - July 11 - 15

Scott Moninger took home the Green Wave's 56th win of the year in Stage 2 of the Cascade Classic. Again it was Mercury who dominated the action as a group of 5 riders gained a minute on the rest of the field. Mercury had 3 riders in that group including stage 1 winner and overall leader Chris Wherry in the group.

Stage 2 Results

Stage 3 was a one-mile uphill time trial held to determine who actually was in the lead for GC. With Mercury controlling things in the race and winning the first two stages, the time trial needed to be held to separate the three
Mercury team riders and determine who actually was in the lead. The Mercury team once again dominated the stage taking first, second & fourth on the stage. The team’s fine performance in the stage finally determined who was leading in GC. Mercury is now first, second & third.
