Cofidis sweeps Horner aside

Cofidis ended Chris Horner's bid for victory at the Tour de L'Ain on Wednesday when Rein Taaramae led two Cofidis teammates across the finish line at the end of 129.6km stage four atop the Col du Grand Colombiere. Tarramae won with a time of 3:36:58, and David Moncoutie and and Damien Monier were second and third at 30 and 34 seconds respectively.  Horner finished fourth.

Taaramae attacked early on the final climb and caught the leftovers of a break one-by-one until he reached the finish for the stage win and an overall victory. Horner dropped from first to second place in the overall, and Moncoutie was third overall.
