Stage 6 - St Georges circuit race, 154 km
With the final stage of the 2003 edition of Beauce half over, the situation has changed slightly. The same seven riders are up the road - Cory Lange (Canadian National), polka dot jersey holder Irving Aguilar and his Tecos- Mercurio team mate Joel Alamillo, Lubos Kejval (Ed's System - ZVVZ), the ever-present Burke Swindlehurst (Navigators), Bert Scheirlinckx (Flanders - Iteamnova.com) and Ryan Roth (Jet Fuel) - but there are two chasers at 1:37, with the peloton at 2:07. The chasers are Lubor Tesar (Ed's System - ZVVZ) and David Salomon Alvarez (Tecos - Mercurio). Both these riders have team mates in the front group, and Kejval is best placed on GC. Kejval took a bonus sprint on lap 6, gaining 3 seconds, so he is now 3:39 behind Lieswyn.
