Ronde van Drenthe 2019

Well that was eventful. Leading up to the race all the talk had been about the crazy wind that had been blasting the region all week. After breakfast on Sunday it was incredibly calm outside, there were even a few hints on blue sky overhead! As the race went on there was a bit of everything: Wind, rain, even hail but it was a lucky escape based on how the weather has been all week! Home tomorrow for a few days before Trofeo Binda next weekend!
