Zabel... Why not?

Watching Erik Zabel flying to the front and stretching for the line to nab third today, made me realize that perhaps a 7th green jersey is not such a fantasy.  His form looks good, he still has some speed in those 36 year old legs and he has the luxury of riding the blue train of Milram which was built for Ale-Jet.  He certainly will have his work cut out for him, but it's a long grueling tour, and experience and consistancy may win out.
