Nor was it a very hard edition. Freire also won a T-A once.

You get to wear a rainbow jersey on the road more in one year than 4 years of a TT WC jersey.

53 to 8 in Fabian's favor, looks like a done deal.

Whats the next heads up comparison?

Tirreno wasn't PT then. It was 2.HC

Petachi was second the year Freire won.

Verona 2004 was the most boring conservative race I've seen in my life. What about it?
