Correction, Boonen was third, not second.

Three Aussies in top five.

Petacchi has lost it.

When was the last time Freire won off a teammate's lead-out?

Worlds 2004 (Verona).

Oscar Freire is so good it's kind of silly.

Yeah, he doesn't really need a leadout, but he does benefit from
teamwork in the final. Like last year at Brabantse Pijl.

Maybe Valverde lead him out for the win at the Worlds in Verona?

Possibly. He's good enough to come off another team's train. I like him a
lot.

Petacchi finished behind his own lead-out.

Popovych held on longer than I expected. When Ricco attacked on the Poggio I
thought he had a chance to stay clear.

Zabel must be kind of ****ed. Think what could have happened if
Petacchi led him out instead of the other way around.

Petacchi sat up when he saw Freire and Boonen pull away in front of him.
If he kept his head down he would have finished ahead of Zabel.
