Erik Zabel was the best German finisher in Milano-Sanremo, finishing sixth in one of his favourite races which he has won four times. Now he is looking to win another race for the fourth time, the Rund um den Henninger Turm in Frankfurt, Germany, on May 1.
"I have very good memories of the race and naturally I would like to add one more," he said. "But teams other than Milram want to win, too, and the competition will be very hard, not just from the German ProTour rivals Gerolsteiner and T-Mobile."
Zabel calls the race "one of the most important. It is a Classic with long tradition. And I have already won it three times. That gives me an extra motivation to be successful there again."
