Finally the Dutch are showing their true potential.
No one is going to read the Friday-before-De-Ronde post unless it is an exclusive interview with Tommeke and he is not answering our IMs. Four years ago at KT2012 we were there when Boonen took Ballan and Pozzato to the line. Who would have bet against him then? Now there are some doubts but he Looks Fantastic. Shouldn’t that count for something? Maybe he has been sandbagging his way through last week’s races. Maybe this has been Etixx-Quickstep’s mad plan after all. Not bloody likely, but we can hope Tommeke gets to the front and scares everyone again.
While the Belgians work on that, the Dutch have been working on this.
