Zabel bested again

In what is becoming rather a frustrating situation for him, Telekom sprinter Erik Zabel (Ger) was again beaten into second place in a major road race this year - and the third time in this event. The 159 km fourth stage of the Challenge Mallorca was won by Mapei's Paolo Bettini, who hung on over the three climbs during the race which started and finished in the seaside town of Soller.

The main attack of the day came from David Extebarria (Spa, ONCE), who left the bunch with 20 kms to go, maintaining a lead until just 1 km from the finish, when he was caught by the bunch. The Mapei team were on the job, managed to get Bettini in place for the sprint, along with World Champion, Oscar Freire who finished fourth in the stage.

In the overall classification, Francesco Cabello (Spa, Kelme) kept his 15 second lead over compatriot, Pedro Horillo (Vitalicio Seguros), and he looks set to win the overall tomorrow. Erik Zabel is in third position, a further 2 seconds back.
