i'll be following Slagter this year
we'll see if form in this race leads to good results in the Euro season

also, thanks to Andre Greipel to coming down under with good form every year and giving credibility to our race

There was an interview done with Andy Schleck at the TDU and he appeared to have his doubts about whether his injury would allow him to return to his previous level (or at least it could take six months or more). He did sound like he lacked a lot of confidence. I'm not a fan nor do I dislike him but this was a very insightful interview.

So Blanco win the race and have a man in 6th, with 2 young dutchmen.

Best revenge on the old sponsor they could get

I doubt the results matter. Dutch media is like German media in 2006/2007. They'll keep digging until all dutch sponsors/interest is gone. Just like what happened in Germany and was the end of tmob, gerolsteiner, milram..

We could do without the ENECO Tour (in its current format)
Bring back Ronde van Nederland with 2 proper Limburg stages
