Zabriskie's Trying Times

Dave Zabriskie posted a 54'38" individual time trial on Stage 3 of the Tour de Georgia this year. He called the course "very hard, very hard," that it was hard to get a rhythm, and that he wasn't really overjoyed with his performance for the day. Still, it was enough for third place on the day and, more importantly, put him third overall at just 24 seconds behind the race leader - Floyd Landis.

Zabriskie was clearly kickin' it when he came by us on this hilly section of the ITT. This was a tough section of the climb and the crowds got bigger as the riders climbed higher. Zabriskie said having the crowds there "definitely helps because you don't want to slow down when everyone's screaming your name."
