Article in dutch NP "trouw" HERE about the fragile state of dutch cyling.

prob upset about this paragraph:

Een sprinter die hijgend en puffend door Frankrijk zeulde, vormde vanuit Nederlands perspectief het hoogtepunt van de Tour de France. Bij gebrek aan beter richtten alle camera’s zich op Kenny van Hummel, tot een schuiver een einde maakte aan de deelname van de laagst geklasseerde renner in het peloton. De bodem leek bereikt.

Terwijl Van Hummel zich ontpopte tot clown, maalde een groot talent stilletjes over bergtoppen in Zwitserland


Ah, I just saw the winner at the start....

Ouch.. Grabsch... 24s behind already...

Fab makes an ITT look like it's a 'spinning' class, as if he is coasting along on his Sunday morning recovery ride, no pressure on the legs running a 39xwhatever!

Looks like Canc will win with a 1 '30 gap. He's really flying. The TT of his life? Grabsch, Larsson, Wiggins, Pinotti, Zirbel, Martin and EBH will fight for the two remaing podium spots.

Canc will pass Larsson soon.

Bala, is this article basically stating that too many good junior/young Dutch riders quit because there are not enough upper level amateur/developmental pro teams? Only Rabo Continental?

This really is the Canc-show. We don't even get to see the intermediate times of the other riders!

What do those times matter anyway. It's like comparing ITT times from pros to amateurs'. ;)

Fab's in a different league

HA, and Moerenhout seems to be in the same league as Wiggins and Grabsch...

Speaking of lowlanders... How are Cornu and Rosseler doing?

Basically it says that after Gesink & Boom, there is not a whole lot of top tier talent, and it suggests that instead of Rabo being the only destination for Dutch talent, riders should try alternative paths, for instance Gesink only joining Rabo CT in '06, working with other teams first, and Boom having a long and prosperous cyclo-cross education.

Thank you Moondance!!

Rosseler just got gapped. Didn't he start 4 minutes ahead of the Canc?
