Paris-Nice stage 6 wrap-up

Just one stage to go in the race to the sun, and today in Cannes, Kazakhstani Andrey Kashechkin (Liberty Seguros) emulated his friend and teammate Alexandre Vinokourov by winning the stage solo, as Vino did two years ago. Kashechkin attacked the remnants of the early break on the Col du Tanneron with 23 km to go, catching and passing Evgeni Petrov (Lampre-Fondital) 1 km from the top. He then rode a very strong finale to end 1'06 ahead of Sylvain Chavanel (Cofidis) and 1'11 in front of Sandy Casar (Française des Jeux).
