Déjà-vu all over again

By Susan Westemeyer

Another Niedersachsen stage, another Petacchi win. This one was different in that Alessandro Petacchi's teammate Erik Zabel finished second, giving Milram the old one-two.

"Incredible. We have a great team. They worked all day, so this victory is for them," said Petacchi at the finish. "Now, I'm really satisfied. I feel like a different person than what I was at Milan-Sanremo. Thanks again to Zabel, who was at my disposal again today. I hope I can pay him back this favour as soon as possible."

Said Milram directeur sportif Antonio Bevilacqua: "Petacchi is himself again, sure of himself and serene at the same time. It shows that the time at home is bearing fruit. We look forward to the Giro d'Italia now. If Alessandro's form increases just a little more, we will have fun there. Like he says: it's just a question of time."

20 kilometres into the race the inevitable breakaway group formed, with Christoph Meschenmoser (Skil Shimano), Darren Lill (Navigators), Dominik Klemme (3C-Gruppe-Lamonta) and Matthias Hahn (Thüringer Energie). They built up an advantage of up to five minutes before being rounded up again some 150 km later.
