'Slagter is their only hope for the next months'. Have you forgotten about Mollema, to name just one?
Mollema, the eternal second? Look, during TDU I constantly played down Slagter's chances, and then he won, and last year's Eneco I never thought Boom would be able to ride like that. I'm just getting superstitious(although I'm not into such bull**** at all), I think I'd better not support Dutch riders again. 2011 TdF I thought Gesink would kick *** there, but from the first day on he was crashing already. It's sometimes better to expect nothing from the Dutch, makes it much better when they actually do perform.
And yeah, it's indeed very frustrating to root for Dutch riders.
