    Olympia Tour

    The Olympia Tour kicked off tonight, with a Team Time Trial starting in, and ending outside of, appropriately enough, Amsterdam's Olympic Stadium.

    A slew of pics will be posted on the blog, but for now here's two.



    "our" guys.



    "the" guy.

    Could be. IIRC light blue shirt geezer in the Blijlevens vs Julich heavyweight showdown photo was chief commissaire on the Tour that year and was a Dutchman. They interviewed him on Australian TV over some altercation during the Tour, may even have been over that incident. Highly likely it is the same bloke.

    So Theo Bos just keeps on rolling.
    Guess he is trying to snag as many wins as possible before they boot him for a spell.
    Ever since the Turkey "incident", he's been on fire.

    Didn't speak to him, but every time a fan went up to him to say hello, he took a moment to chat.

    he's a media darling in NL.

    the amount of press following him, and blanking the other racers, echoed the circus around LA.

    being the neophyte that I am, I didn't even know what the Olympia Tour is. Thought it was some local stage race until I clicked in here.

    What did you expect?
    The Olympia Tour is not a cat5 crit and it has nothing to do with 20' intervals.

    Want to predict which year Rabo will bring Tejay out of AAA?

    I don't feel that I can add anything substantive to this thread, but I am appreciative.
    Sean Kelly is a god, sure a god that I can't understand a word he is saying, but a god nonetheless.
