At our age we need all the wisdom we can get for in our older years. Tiny book Though. The "elf books" are so sweet and very wise. I gave this one to my cousin on her 90th birthday and she felt the same. Zabel leans back in his chair again and laughs, before coming forward to say, "I think that I was too focused on Petacchi and also with the radio I had the earphone in my right ear Are these the two of the woes of modern day cycling for Zabel - Petacchi and radios?
Well, Petacchi no - Zabel recognises the answer to Petacchi's dominance is to attack in different ways - but did he lose San remo because of the radio? I didn't hear him, and I didn't think that there was anybody there.
Without the earphone, I would sprint until the line and make a tiger jump, and I think it would have been much closer. Maybe if Freire beat me anyway, I think it would be a question of a photo-finish. I was sure I was the winner of the race and then when I went up, for sure I lost three kph and Freire is one of the guys in the peloton who has the best punch to the line Zabel then reinforces his previous words. But when you make a mistake like I did Well there are two sides: that cycling is much safer now because in the earlier years, the sporting directors in the cars, especially the ones that are nervous, are driving inside the peloton, inside the bunch and talking to the riders, so for that it is much more safe now So for me, I would like that the UCI to forbid radios so that it brings back more confidence in ourselves.
I think it's also important that the riders take decisions, any decision, even if it is the wrong one. But now it's always talking over the radio - we have this situation or that situation, what do we do now I ask Zabel how different cycling is today compared to the last 14 years and how he grew as a junior. Is there much difference between the old DDR system you grew up in to the cycling world of today?
I mention the DDR system, but also note the Australian cycling program bares a strong resemblance to the East German model, both achieving great success. I think that cycling is always a conservative sport and traditionalist system. Some things change - nearly every big team now has a bus and it's much more professional - but you have to still ride your bike and do your job.
Not all that looks like gold is blinking; for me, it is not so important where you grew up but how you are.
On that note, I bid my farewell and leave Erik to get himself ready for the time trial. Cadel Evans, behind us, had spent some time of the trainer and was having his bags organised and put in the car.

He didn't intend to hang around Madrid long at all. I jumped in my car and followed a bunch of riders to the finish, where I could set up in the press caravan next to the finish and anxiously wait for Valverde's time. It wasn't enough and Zabel came out the winner of the points competitions. I was glad I'd met him; even if I had to wonder about his dry humour, I was nevertheless left thinking how friendly and intelligent the encounter was. And he was right - it was nice to see Madrid!
