USA Time Trial Champs - Winning Whats it all about?
When finishing is winning and, winning is winning. Saul Raisin and Dave Zabriskie both could claim victories on the day.  Ben Ross photo journal.

Dave Zabriskie and Saul Raisin are no strangers to the comeback trail or winning. But both turned up winners at the USA time trial championships yesterday. One could celebrate his return to pro racing while the other having walked that path himself on to victory could celebrate his second stars and stripes jersey and the national championship victory.

Though one would step on the podium as national champion the other could celebrate a victory no less grand or important. Both could claim victories as each had set out with a goal and both had accomplished it, which is what winning is all about after all.
