Team Garmin-Transitions starts the second-to-last stage of Paris-Nice with David Millar in the top ten overall. Director sportif Bingen Fernandez brings us the blow-by-blow from a fast and potentially dangerous stage:

David Millar - Paris-Nice, stage 6

Today was a lightning-fast stage. Early in the day there was a 23 rider breakaway with some dangerous riders for the GC. Astana, Caisse d’epargne and we started pulling to try to control it and brought the gap down. It was difficult to keep it around two minutes or less but the guys did.

Just before the last category one climb Christian Meier crashed badly and we thought he had broken something. Luckily it was only his bike — he was well and he could finish the stage.

In the last kilometers (in a bad moment) David Millar had a flat but Lionel and Klas the mechanic changed his bike quickly and he made it back to the front group. Finally we could keep our place in the GC after a super fast stage where the riders will remember this fast day for long time.
