Gil grabs win and yellow jersey

Spanish climber Koldo Gil Perez took what he consider his best career result when he won the difficult sixth stage of the Tour de Suisse in La Punt. On the final hors categorie climb of the Albulapass, the Saunier Duval rider jumped away from a small lead group which had been considerably diminished by the driving of the T-Mobile team and then a hard acceleration by Jan Ullrich. He caught and passed lone leader Simon Gerrans (AG2R Prévoyance) before the summit and then raced down the descent to take a very impressive win.
