Zueri Metzgete: Climber or Sprinter?

A quick follow-on/update to the longer preview below.... Last year's edition was won by Paolo Bettini going away, with times all over the map... 14th place Damiano Cunego was over 7 minutes down. No field sprint... but the weather was miserable.

The previous year saw a 30-man bunch sprint won by the Spanish Arrow (yay!), while the 2003 edition was won by Daniele Nardello who snuck away for a 6 second win over Jan Ullrich and 11 seconds over everyone else.

Weather.com predicts a 40% chance of showers Sunday, just ambiguous enough to make this race impossible to handicap.
