Netherlander. Started tinkering with bikes in 2009, found the forum, life complete.

Love the looks of steel bikes, love building them: http://www.facebook.com/fietsenvanstaal

Try to ride a lot... as messenger and cycle tourist - since 2016 on steel only http://app.strava.com/athletes/575838

    If it'd been vd Breggen or v Vleuten that attacked, they (UK, France, Denmark as well as Oz riders) would have raced to close the gap. Really don't understand why they somehow expected the two favorites in orange to do it for them when Blaak went. Silly.

    Anyhow, this was an incredible day for the team

    1. Blaak
    2. Van Vleuten
    3. Van der Breggen
    4. Brand
    5. Van Dijk
    6. Ensing
    7. Pieters
    8. Vos

    Edit: forum software has its own ideas about the top 10 apparently

    Nah. Dumoulin said he's in good shape but the course is not selective enough, so he would have to choose a surprise attack and gamble. Same goes for Mollema, Terpstra. Maybe a very late attack (last 2k) by Boom but I really can't see it happening.

    ^ Valverde, maybe? ;-)

    Still impressed with these two. And I think they have not celebrated all out, keeping their eye on Saturday and Sunday...

    I wonder how they will fuck up the jersey design though

    Edit: justread that the UCI has rules for that (for whatever that's worth)

    Has to make up 50 seconds on the climb on Dumoulin though... how does one negative split that
