terzo rene said:There have been rumors that the planned more difficult final phase of the course will be scrapped. In that case Petacchi will be hard to beat. Otherwise every other team in the race will do their best to drop him or at least drain his legs on every bump in the road for the last 40km.
If Zabel had not been beated my Bettini today I would definately have agreed. Beat Thor Hushovd too...atpjunkie said:on the Cipressa or Poggio (or a descent) my guess is Milram will counter with Zabel (since he's been showing 'classics' style riding of late) to counter. If they can bring back together it will be sprinters joy but I'm seeing Zabel vs Bettini in a small group and the big boys being left out. Advantage Zabel.
