RACE: Paris Tours

As the season draws to it's close the Motorola Cycling team yesterday
consolidated the good performances that they have registered throughout the
season in the World Cup events by taking second place in the team standings at
Paris Tours.

Erik Zabel, from the German Telekom team, who recently garnered four stage wins
at the Tour de l'Avenir took the sprint on the Rue de Grammont in Tours, ahead
of almost the whole pack. The boulevard in the Loire city is revered by the
World's sprinters much in the same way as Alpe d'Huez is by the top climbers.

After an aggressive final in the race, Steve Bauer garnered sixth place, posting
his best performance in the World Cup series this year. With one event
remaining, the Tour of Lombardy next Saturday, it looks unlikely that there will
be any major changes in the overall standings.

Ginaluca Bortolami's second place gave him the points necessary to move into
first place in the individual standings to move ahead of the Belgian Johan
Museeuw. The Lombard event will advantage the Italian more than the Belgian, so
it now looks as if the final race will be a formality.
