Is there any live-stream available yet? I'm from Holland and it won't be on tv until 3PM (Yes I know it's pathetic, it's the biggest one day race in Holland and the coverage is garbage..)

I thought the NOS started the coverage at 13.35 (probably later for the live footage).

Was on the radio. They have some people in the race, or are in touch with people in the race. Maurice Jessen (?) on the moto.

From live coverage here on cyclingnews.com

The riders are now at the Camerigberg and Poels has been dropped.


Don't know by how much, maybe he can get back. Seems way too early to be dropped already.

L1 one reported it from the moto. He got dropped (grimacing) on the Camerig (hill 10), but the team director rode up to him, it was alleged he had a technical, and they rode him back to the group.

They are unsure if they faked the technical...

They are now discussing if it has to do with the weather, the flat he already had and if he is motivated enough.
