Ronde van Overijssel 2012 / 4 May / Prologue Holten
This year the Ronde van Overijssel (UCI 1.2) celebrates its 60th anniversary, which was the perfect opportunity for the organization to add an extra day to this Dutch race. Instead of only the classic race on Saturday, the riders now also had to ride a prologue of 2,8 km. on Friday on the Holterberg in Holten.
Dion Beukeboom from Cyclingteam De Rijke turned out to be the second best rider of the day, but this came as a total surprise to him. He tweeted from the hotel that this was also the reason why he wasn’t present at the podium ceremony after the prologue and apologized for this.
