Together the duo have notched up 7 victories in this monument of cycling. In 2004 Erik Zabel was already celebrating when Óscar Freire slipped past him to cross the line in first pace.
"Just as I was raising my arms in victory I saw Óscar Freire whizzing past me on my right. After that you didn't see a photo finish of me where I didn't have my hands firmly on the handlebars for ages!"
In 2012 Erik Zabel is sprint trainer with Katusha and supports Óscar as a race advisor. The goal is clear: Óscar already has his 4th victory in Milan - Sanremo in sight and if he is successful, he'll catch Erik. Erik checks out the key points on the course and gives valuable tips for some of the key moments in the race.
