Paolo Bettini gets first win of the season

September 4, 2007

Paolo continues to show that winning in the rainbow jersey is one of the hardest tasks in cycling. It took the Italian rider until September to notch his second win. His first win came all the way back in February’s Tour of California.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve won, but we’re professionals and we know with the hard work, the results will come.”

Givven the price of the jersey, maybe Paolo should let someone else bear the weight of World Champion when riders convene in Stuttgart later this month.
