Filippo Pozzato lived up to his promises to win stage five to Autun. The 25 year-old Italian from Liquigas stamped his authority on the stage finale with Freire and Bennati trailing in. He had indicated the day before that he could possibly make the stage win and at the same time thought that stage 12, 178.5 kilometres to Castres, suited his characteristics.

"I hope I can do something well on stage 12," he said the morning after his win, in Semur-en-Auxois to Cyclingnews.

Well, it's one thing to say it and another to do it," he continued when asked if we could now expect him to go on and actually win the stage, just as he did in Autun. "We will try!" he finished.
