Giro d’Italia 2010 / 9 May / Amsterdam-Utrecht
Rick Flens (RAB) was in today’s breakaway (a group of four riders) and there were a lot of Dutch supporters on the side of the roads cheering him on, but he got caught a few kilometres before the finish.
Carlos Sastre (CER), winner of the Tour de France in 2008, is one of the favorites for a good place in the GC.
The podium where the riders had to sign the startlist.
Bradley Wiggins (SKY), here riding in the pink jersey just after the start, had to give up his leading position after one day: Cadel Evans (BMC) is the new leader.
