Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

I still say he was unfairly treated and had his tremendous victory taken from him for political reasons......

Between this commercial and the one about the weird dutch powerbar substitute with the kid and the string, I'm really starting to think about subscribing to some European TV stations.

That's the first time in years that a commercial has made me out&out belly laugh. & that w/ no knowledge of the primary language. GOOD show.

Pure Genius! I love it.

If you expanded the video's info it provides the translation.

Whatch a Rabobank Tour de France cyclist explaining his whereabouts while cycling in Holland!
Remember the Rasmussen incident in 2007..:0)

Tranlslation dutch-english:
- Dutch team manager sees 'Tour de France Controle' on his mobile phone screen
- he gets out of his car ans shouts 'controle , eruit jullie'( A check, get out you all!)
- The mexicans get out and the manager shouts 'spelen!' ('Play!")
- The mexicans start to play and the Team Rabo cyclist says : "Hello, yes I am still in Mexico'
Followng text: 'We know all about it, do you?
You read all about it in the tour guide''.
