Zabel's a gamer. Races anywhere, anytime. My favorite aspect of any rider outside of just being plain good which he is. If he had a lead out train like Petacchi does, he'd win more races.
Petacchi has the best sprinting form though. Other guys show some good form, but they'll flail, their rear wheel dancing all over the place. Petacchi, as powerful as he is, is very quiet. Doesn't look like he yanks the bar much, the bike doesn't move laterally in excess, back flat, head is still, really puts the squeeze on in his downstroke.
