Dauphiné stage 6 wrapup

Botero takes two, but lead stays with Landaluze

Stage 6 was a tough day for the Dauphiné Libéré peloton in the French Alps. Starting in Albertville, the riders tackled three Cat. 1 climbs before doing the hors categorie Col de Joux-Plane, then descending into Morzine for the finish. As expected, all the GC riders tried to break each other's legs on the last couple of climbs, with Santi Botero (Phonak) and David Moncoutié (Cofidis) crossing the summit of the Joux-Plane first, ahead of Francisco Mancebo (Illes Balears), Christophe Moreau (Credit Agricole), and Marzio Bruseghin (Fassa Bortolo), then a group containing Lance Armstrong (Discovery), Alexandre Vinokourov (T-Mobile), Levi Leipheimer (Gerolsteiner), David Arroyo (Illes Balears), and Jose Gomez Marchante (Saunier Duval).
