    ...and sometimes he pulls 'em off. If there's one constant in the pro peleton, it HAS to be Erik Zabel. He's always there in the big finishes - both early, mid and late-season. He wanted to do something special today in Paris-Tours as it was his final race with T-Mobile after 13 years of service with them. Mission accomplished.


    It's also good to see that he didn't celebrate prematurely like he did a couple of years ago at Milan-San Remo.:blah:

    Yeah. Good for Erik. Too many second places for him this year. And it lets T-Mobile know what they're throwing away. Zabel will probably win another classic or two, but Jan will never win another TdF.
