Stage 6 - St Georges circuit race, 154 km
Three laps into the final stage of Beauce and we have a break of seven 1:40 up the road. The break went four kilometres into the stage, on the first climb. In the break are: Cory Lange (Canadian National), polka dot jersey holder Irving Aguilar and his Tecos- Mercurio team mate Joel Alamillo, Lubos Kejval (Ed's System - ZVVZ), the ever-present Burke Swindlehurst (Navigators), Bert Scheirlinckx (Flanders - Iteamnova.com) and Ryan Roth (Jet Fuel). Scheirlinckx is best placed on GC, in 10th at 3:42.
7 Up is at the front chasing, assisted by the full Health Net squad, so we obviously have a deal in place. Gord Fraser has been taking pulls at the front...
So far we have a number of drop outs, including Andrew Randell (Jet Fuel), Jean-François Laroche, Martin St Laurent and Alex Cloutier (all VW-Trek), Vassili Davidenko (Navigators) and Mathieu Roy (Espoirs de Laval).
