McEwen takes another, as big teams watchful

Australian champion Robbie McEwen (Davitamon Lotto) won the longest stage of Tour de Suisse, 208 kilometres between Vaduz near the Austrian border and Bad Zurzach. During the stage, many teams showed an unwillingness to work at the front of the peloton, and the three man break that escaped halfway through got an honest chance to stay away. At the end, race leader Jan Ullrich finished in the peloton at the same time as the winner, and none of the top riders in the GC gained any bonus seconds.
