Flat riding Dutch kicks ass...

If you didn't pay attention, that orange and blue blur going up the last climb of Saturday's Paris-Nice stage was Dutchman Posthuma. The final 12km was flat, with tail wind and perfect for us flatlanders. He won easily. Danielson, so called climbing specialist from Durango, tried but fizzled... Maybe the hills in Holland are bigger than in Colorado?

Also, Rabobank teammate Oscar Freire made it a hattrick at Tirreno-Adriatico. Guess it's a pretty good team so far.

The Dutch may be able to ride flats and climb some, but Postuma may want to work on his descending. Loved the video of him riding off the road into the gravel on the last descent before the finish. Maybe he was on some of S-Works' jet fuel?

Actually, he was a farmer in a past life, and realized the field needed some plowing...
