Battle for the green jersey
Erik Zabel reclaimed the green sprint jersey yesterday by leading Robbie McEwen through an intermediate sprint. At the beginning of today's stage, Zabel led by 3 points in the competition.
Today, McEwen outsprinted Zabel at the only intermediate sprint that mattered (the members of a breakaway earned the points at the other), but by only 1 position, earning 6 points to Zabel's 4, so Zabel will hold on to the jersey for at least 1 more day.
