Amstel Gold Race
Ok, I'm early but we teachers are still off in North Yorks, and this is a good distraction from planning and marking.
Looking at draft team options for Sunday and there are currently 23 Dutch riders listed as potentially riding. Whilst a Dutch rider hasn't won since (E) Dekker in 2001, statistically they're the most successful nation in the race, with 17 victories. Then it's the Belgians with 11, Italians 6 and others 3 or fewer.
With Sagan as the exception, I'm confident in fielding 8 Dutch riders who could do well. I'm sure they won't all remain in my team, but could this be a year for a 'home' victory? Mollema, Terpstra etc...
