Well this stage was a lot fun. Makes up for all the dull stages we had to endure.

Keep the short (max20km) TT and add atleast a semi hard hilly stage to this one and the Eneco is a very nice race.

They will ride this stage the next 5 years which is very good news.


p.s. Contadorrrrrrrrrr! Doesn't matter where he is, but he will attack and try to win the race. Also a race that is pretty much impossible for him to win (Eneco Tour).

Strong enough. He wasted too much energy before the last time up the Muur, and he also had a bad position. He's gonna get ready for the Vuelta
Is he doing San Sebastian?
 
Contador is not far from full strength. He misses some stamina but this also wasn't his course.

The Vuelta design with short stages and not that many super-hard multi mountain stages is ideal for him in his current state. The slight lack of stamina he has right now will be fixed for next season but won't bother him in the Vuelta.
 
Major respect to Contador for trying even on this course. Most others would've sat up or even DNS in order to avoid risks ahead of one's main season objective. But not Contador. A true champion.

Contador is a real racer. It would have been cool had he won the Eneco Tour. It was quite bizarre to see Boom dropping him on a climb, but of course cobbles change everything.
