Coyot and Hushovd were part of a 4 man group that escaped on Thors attack in the last 15 kms. The duo were the only survivors of the quartet of escapees left to battle for the finish as they kept the peloton at bay by a mere 32 seconds to snatch the win for their earlier efforts. Mauro Facci won the bunch sprint for third place.

The Race part of the 2006 Coupe de France started near the sponsors' Haribo Candy factory in Uzes and finished in Marseille near the historic old port. Coyot now leads the Coupe de France taking the lead from Bertagnolli who started his season winning the Tour du Haut Var earlier this week.

The Coupe de France continues with Cholet-Pays de Loire, another 204 km race on the 19th of March.

Marty Jemison Debut
A historic note: Marty Jemison (retired USPS) started his pro career at 29 years old in 1994 with his debut race as a neo pro riding for the D.S. Jan Rass on the Word Perfect Team at the Haribo Classic.
