A tribute to Edvald Boasson Hagen (Team Sky)


I found a great link on paris.thover.com Made by a UK team of poets and film makers Viral Verse

Kai Reus has/had mono too


They found traces of the virus in his blood. But he is almost fit to ride races again.

Laurens ten Dam live on PdC this friday


Rabo spreads the news sooner than PdC itself. Funny!

Which Dutch races should be in the VDS ranking?

Lately, I have been bugging Chris about the Dutch races in the official VDS ranking. To make matters worse, Chris recently started bugging me about the same subject. Therefore I present to you the...

Rotterdam Sixday is underway


Sadly there doesn't seem to be live video this year. Only some live pictures but that's a pretty lame surrogate I'd say. Luckily I won tickets for the show tonight. Too bad I can't wave at you guys. TINGELINGELING!

Lance exclusively in Dutch & Flemish newspapers


Both the Flemmish Het Nieuwsblad and the Dutch Telegraaf will have articles about exclusive interviews with Lance Armstrong both tomorrow and thursday. If we are to believe the teasers Alberto Contador won't be saving these for his scrap book. Lance is ready for war. Why he goes for the Dutch/Flemmish media is a mystery to me. Maybe because of the TdF start in Rotterdam?


Smaakmakers banned from cyclo-cross

  For the lucky few that can read and understand Dutch I can really recommend the cycling columns Rob de Haan writes for www.nusport.nl. He writes about fun/interesting facts in contemporary and...


Paris-Dakar post race thread

No I'm not mistaking the PdC for a motorized cross website. It was done. Riding 7193 km from the Eiffel tower to Senegal. ON A BIKE! It's actually been the third edition this year. I stumbled upon...

The Best of Flecha


On the Rabobank site there is a great clip about the best of Flecha in the past four years. Almost completely in English and a great watch. I don't know how to link to it directly but maybe someone else can help us out there. The last word Flecha says in the clip is "Kippenvel". (goosebumps). That's what I got from watching this too. Too bad there were not a lot of 1st places in his Rabo years. Wishing him all the best in the future!

Happy Birthday Cyclinglinks.nl


Last week saw the 11th birthday of the site that brings you links to the websites of all cycling races around the world. Plus a 24h feed with links to the 20 main cycling news sites. The guy who operates this site as a service to cyclingland has his birthday today too. I know because he is a direct colleague of mine. So, congratulations Cyclinglinks.nl!

Dekker positive, confession time


It makes me sad. He will be back though. He'll probably be 26 then so he still has a whole cycling life ahead of him.

Rini Wagtmans leaves Astana


He set up a new management with Theo de Rooy as chief but Astana chose Martinelli. He does not know these people so he leaves. I think he played a crucial role in east-west diplomacy up till now so a renewed license is becoming less likely every day now. Poor Contador. Caught in a trap, why did he have to ask for a longer contract?


Back Numbers Tour 2009

I couldn't find it on letour.fr but many sites are reporting the back numbers for the coming TdF. Sastre got number 1. Some surprises. Cavendish has a 1 and Pellizotti too. I thought Kreuziger...

VDS Stage Stats

As a participant in this year’s VDS competition I sometimes get the feeling I am following a Grand Tour by reading the paper. The problem is that every time I run to the kiosk to buy my paper it...


Driedaagse de Panne Stage 3A LIVE!
