Rabobank confirms that 2001 World Cup winner and winner of four TdF stages won't enter this years TdF. He's still recovering from hamstring problems which allready ruined most of the 2003 season for him.
He will be missed!
I wonder where his teammates stand. Somehow I have a feeling that Boogerd will not repeat last year's stunt (taking the 'queen stage'). And so far we haven't seen much of 'capo' Leipheimer, did we?
Per angusta ad augusta
With Boogerd you simply never know, but I think we can expect something good from Bram de Groot
