Bernard Hinault’s call “Here’s a solid team that can get several of its riders into breaks. Last year it was the Austrian Georg Totschnig who took a stage; whose turn is it now? Stefan Schumacher and René Haselbacher are riding strong, and Beat Zberg has experience on his side. As for their team leader, a really good Levi Leipheimer shouldn’t be far from the podium.”
