Last year I missed the post-Tour de France criteriums, but this year I at least made it to the race in Surhuisterveen. Only two days after the Tour de France. The first race is traditionally held in Boxmeer, but Surhuisterveen is really close by and… as the only racing crit after the Tour this one was attended by Geraint Thomas, accompanied by Tom Dumoulin, Baule Mollema, Laurens ten Dam and Ramon Sinkeldam. A pretty damn impressive list of cyclists.
Back in March I responded to a tweet to post a photo of yourself in shorts. We had some great sunny days in March and I responded to the tweet with a photo (as you do ;) ). I hadn’t really thought about if afterwards until suddenly in April I got a message asking if I’d like to join the Team Roompot crew for a day as VIP during the Belgium Tour. Had to think about it for a few seconds (it’s a bit of a drive from the North of the Netherlands) but it’s a superb opportunity and Belgium is a different setting. That makes it really interesting too!
