    CDCA wins the Dutch women's Nationals race. In the post race interview she said she might reconsider the decision to race the Worlds in the U23 class (which she has a right to but would be ridiculous indeed, seeing how good she is @ elite level now).

    The Dutch ladies (esp. Alvarado, Worst, Kastelijn & Brand) have pushed each other to a super high level over the last years, seeing how Marianne Vos really had to struggle very hard to reach 5th place.

    Can we nominate the rider of the year yet? My fav is... MVDP. 90 race days (CX, MTB & road combined) brought him 47 wins. Includes most amazing/crazy/wtf (road) win of the year: Amstel Gold Race.
