Alberto Contador (Discovery Channel) showed his climbing brilliance again by winning stage 4 of Pari
PIC © TIM DE WAELE Alberto Contador (Discovery Channel) has won the fourth stage of Paris-Nice, beating David Rebellin (Gerolstiner) and David Lopez Garcia (Caisse d'Epargne) on the Montee Laurent Jalabert in Mende. After the peloton cuaght the last survivor of the early break with 1 km to go, Contador surged clear with Rebellin, and was able to hold off the Italian for victory. Rebellin's consolation was that he took over the race leader's yellow jersey from compatriot Franco Pellizotti, with Contador moving up to second overall at six seconds. The fourth leg between Maurs and Mende was earmarked as the first really decisive stage, with the finish atop the cat. 1 Monte Laurent Jalabert. It started at 11:47 with 157 riders present. Belgian Thierry Marichal (Franaise des Jeux) did not start. In the opening kilometres, a break of 17 tried to get clear, but was hauled back before five kilometres. At the top of the first climb, the cat. 2 Cte de Quotidiane (km 9.5), Gorka Verdugo (Euskaltel) was first ahead of David Loosli (Lampre-Fondital) and Yohann Le Boulanger (Bouygues Telecom). The peloton split on the climb, with 40 riders being left in a chase group. Sandy Casar (Franaise des Jeux) attacked shortly after the summit and was joined by Amael Moinard (Cofidis) and Dmitry Muravyev (Astana). The three worked hard for a gap, gaining just 40 seconds by the top of the second climb, the cat. 2 Cote de Montsalvy (km 30). Casar was first to the top ahead of Moinard and Muravyev, while mountains leader Heinrich Haussler (Gerolsteiner) took the points for fourth. The pace settled down and the peloton regrouped. The leaders upped their advantage to 9'50 after 61 km, as three riders abandoned: Massimiliano Mori (Lampre), Angelo Furlan (Credit Agricole) and Benot Vaugrenard (Franaise des Jeux). The first sprint at Espalion (km 70) saw Casar ahead of Moinard and Muravyev, while the Liquigas team increased the pace in the bunch to start a serious chase. The break had an average speed of 39.05km/h after two hours. The third cat. 2 climb of the day was the Cte de Biounac (km 76), where Moinard crossed the summit first ahead of Casar and Muravyev. The lead dropped back to six minutes at the feed zone (km 95) as the peloton took control of the chase, with Discovery Channel, Bouygues Telecom and Caisse d'Epargne assisting the Liquigas effort. The leaders were fighting a losing battle as they passed through the second intermediate sprint at St Saturnin de Lenne (km 108) with Muravyev, Casar and Moinard crossing in that order. The run into the final two climbs was all gradually uphill. Despite a fast third hour (46.1km/h), the breakaways only had 2'50 with 20 km to go. Muravyev was the first to be dropped as the race hit the Cte de Chabrits (km 162). The Kazakh held on for third behind Casar and Moinard, but the Discovery-led bunch was only 25 seconds behind at the summit. The final climb in Mende was a gruelling 3.1km at 10%, and the peloton tackled it at full speed, catching Casar with one kilometre to go. Alberto Contador (Discovery) attacked with David Rebellin (Gerolsteiner), but the Italian couldn't follow the young Spaniard, who celebrated victory atop the Monte Laurent Jalabert in Mende. Rebellin was close behind him in second place, ahead of David Lopez Garcia (Caisse d'Epargne). Tomorrow's fifth stage is a hilly 178 from Sorgues to Manosque. The finish is suited to a rider like Rebellin or Pellizotti, as once again the final kilometre is slightly uphill.
