Half-nut beat Zabel by 1 second today on a stage that ended with a finishing climb. Either LA was
really only giving it a half effort or EZ has become a world-class climber. Discuss amongst
yourselves.

P.S. Yes, I know it's an early season race for Lance. Still, Zabel can't climb that well, can he?

The results I saw had a 7 second difference. LA was 41st and Zabel was 45th. I doubt they were
giving it much of a go.

PS - As far as sprinters go, Zabel is a good climber. Plus he focuses on some of the Spring
classics, San Remo for one, so he is probably further along in his training than LA.

Zabel is 5 times green jersey. If you think that you can get that without being able to climb better
than most racers you ought to try
it.

Six-time green jersey winner, not five.
