Milram training around the world

Erik Zabel is trying something new this off-season: a training camp in Cape town, South Africa. He will be there with teammate Enrico Poitschke before returning home on December 23. It will be a short Christmas break for Zabel, who will be back in the saddle on December 26 for the Christmas Prize track meet in Dortmund, Germany.

Meanwhile, all of the team's other German riders are training together on the Spanish island of Mallorca. In Italy, Alessandro Petacchi will be joined next week in Lido di Camaiore by teammates Fabio Sacchi, Marco Velo, Alberto Ongarato, Volodymyr Dyudya and Elia Rigotto.
