Dutch On the Board


Dekker

Just as Roodlicht abandons his countrymen to become a hedonistic American, Thomas Dekker wins Tirreno-Adriatico.

Dekker had a fairly easy time holding the race lead after the ITT, as the main climbing section of the course was avoided due to snowy conditions.

For Disco, Paolo Salvodelli was 4th on GC, Hincapie 8th and Tommy D 10th. Hopefully the boys will do well in the Spring Classics and the Giro.

This kid is supposed to be a really strong rider, with great potential. He has one very bad negative - a reputation for being scared in the peloton. He doesn't like the shoulders, elbows, pressure and all that. Others know this, and basically bully him out of the way. Hopefully he can overcome this issue and be a challenger for the Danielsons, Cunegos and other young stars.

Oh, wait, he's from Holland. Who cares about that pip-squeak little slab of under-sea land anyway????

By the way, I have dual citizenship. Does that make me lucky, or what????
