A double day at the Healthy Ageing Tour and the sun came out to play. It seems Spring has finally sprung!
As expected, the afternoon TTT has all but ended the GC competition, with Boels Dolmans now comfortably occupying the top four spots in the General Classification. But a special mention goes to Virtu, securing second place in the TTT. Mieke Kröger had a very busy day, turning herself inside out on the TTT after being in the break on the morning road stage.
Here’s a small selection of photos from the day.
