Is Zabel the only other person besides Cipo to beat Petacchi in a sprint this year?
And not even really...Dwayne Barry

Petacchi got hung out to dry in the wind far too early and basically was forced to give Zabel the perfect lead-out to the line. Speaking of Zabel, what's up with Telekom? They don't seem to be riding for him at all, despite not having a GC guy.
Thanks for the spoiler A.H.!!DUOHEAD

Obviously you haven't been on the board for very long...BAi9302010

otherwise you'd know that the whole reason the Tour-Giro-Vuelta board was made was so that we could discuss race results openly without using the General board as it used to be done. Doug Sloan has made it clear a number of times that you don't have to put spoiler in the title of a discussion on this board. If you don't believe me ask him yourself.

but are you stupid or something? You told me to go to the link above, so I did and found...

"2. The Tour/Giro/Vuelta Forum is wide open fair game. Don't go there if you don't want to see results in the subject lines or messages."

Obviously you didn't read the message yourself before recommending I read it.

I wish I knew what the hell you were talking about. I wrote a response reminding some other poster of the spoiler note, which I believe is the same thing you did. In your infinite wisdom, you not only think I am replying to you, but also that I am insulting you?

And you call ME stupid?

You're not too bright yourself.

you're right, I am stupid, I really should have paid more attention to the poster. I have no idea what the hell I was thinking and I can sincerely say I'm sorry :-(

Zabel crossed the line rather strangely. He almost looked surprised to win the sprint. It came accross as if he was given the win.
