Okay, he's got a plate in it, but still... how do you not notice something like that?


It's easy not to notice broken bones, I once walked around 5 months with a broken ankle and only noticed it when I tried to to play with a scooter

For the next five editions the Eneco Tour will be known as the 'BinckBank Tour'. And no, I'm not making this up... I hate these races that change name according to the main sponsor. Especially such stupid names.

A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

Rosa is racing Fleche Wallone which means that he is racing Liege. Could be a danger man. :)

2012 - Tour Med, Le Samyn, Britain, Lombardia, Beijing
2013 - Trofeo Migjorn, Trofeo Platja de Muro, Liege


I just found him because he's KOM for Côte de Saint-Nicolas

No riders were at all those races. Even taking only the monuments, nobody was at all of them.
The closest is Grivko, rode all the WT races except Roubaix 2011

I've found a handful of riders who did Ronde, Roubaix, Amstel, Liege in 2011, but neither of them match the rest.

The only team to have ridden all these races Tour Med, Le Samyn, Britain, Lombardia, Beijing in 2012 was Vacansoleil. That might help you track down who the Strava profile belongs to but as you mentioned it doesn't match up, also noticed a few rides were flagged so it really doesn't make sense.
