Apart from family, what could be more important than wine and bikes? Of course, there might be the odd rant about other topics on here too...

Virgin Zabel

Following Eric Zabel's record winning third victory in the 'Rund um den Henninger Turm', he has been named to T-Mobile's Giro line-up. The shocking thing is that this will be his first Giro. I thought, like Sean Kelly, that there wasn't a race that Zabel hadn't raced in. Must be weird for him to enter a race as a rookie after all this time. He's one of my favorite racers and I'd love to see him pull off a stage win and possibly with several uphill sprint finishes, he could make a run for the points jersey.
