Hamilton/Phonak/Zuelle discussion follow-up (spoiler!)(3 posts)

Hamilton/Phonak/Zuelle discussion follow-up (spoiler!)BergMann

Glancing at the results of the _second_ stage of the Vuelta, something caught my eye:

130 Alex Zuelle (Swi) Phonak Hearing Systems 11.14 min.

Zuelle's already bombed out of the Vuelta!
What can I say, when you've called it, you've called it.

On the bright side for Hamilton: hopefully Zuelle will make good on his promise to retire if his Vuelta sucks, and Phonak can use his salary to buy someone who can actually still contribute to the team!

they can get Leipheimer if he can prove his worth as a domestique working for Rasmussen?
Not a bad idea...BergMann

Yeah, I read an interview with Levi recently (Velonews, I believe), and he was intimating that Rabobank is pressuring him for big results. Question is, will they drop him cold after today?

In spite of his poor form right now, I definitely think he'd be a great addition for Phonak as lieutenant & TTT man.
