Teams & Riders The Cheetah of Numansdorp - Olav Kooij thread

Page 2 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
Kooij is now the 2nd youngest mass sprint winner in the Giro ever, after Mario Cipollini and just ahead of Jonathan Milan, who were both 22 at the time as well.

Still think in pure speed/power he's probably not as good as the likes of Merlier, Milan and all, but he's more of a survivor sprinter. When the races are a little harder he has more left in the tank. Was also already top 15 in his first MSR and top 10 in GW. I see him as a future winner in both races if the racing goes his way.
