Zabriskie wins Vuelta stage; Landis holds lead.

a long way to go.  I just tried to keep it steady?I still quite can't believe it."

   
Zabriskie tried similar moves at the Tour of Belgium in May and at the Championship of Zurich last month but both were brought back.  "I can do those kinds of attacks but they aren't necessarily the smartest things to do," he said.


When asked what was thinking about the time off the front, he added, "I had a Guns 'n Roses song in my head.  I'm not sure which one, though.  It's the one where he says - 'They can't catch me, I'm innocent.'"

 


On the rest of the Vuelta, Zabriskie added, "It looks like it will get really hard so I will have to take it day by day.  Floyd is really motivated and it's blowing through the rest of the team."


Bruyneel added, "The Spanish climbers are getting closer but we are still in the lead.  Floyd feels good.  He's not feeling tired and feels strong and is going to fight for it.  It will be difficult as there is a lot of climbing to come, but I think he will be very good.  It's going to be difficult to win but they still need to take it away from him."
