The ageless wonder

He’s back! Erik Zabel wins today’s stage of La Vuelta.

“There is a special feeling about this victory because after a difficult season with ten second positions and many third places, to win here is very special. It is also important because this is a new team for me.”

Erik who came to help Milram teammate Alessandro Petacchi regain his racing legs prior to the Worlds, turned out to be the stronger man.

“When I went to the team I had the mentality to help Petacchi for the season, but after his crash in the Giro I had to change my focus and try to win again,” he said. “I finally have a victory so it is perfect.”
