I found the video thanks to my online nemesis, BIGRINGRING.COM. If you’re watching the classics this year and see the race get blown apart by a crosswind, you are likely to find plenty of Dutchmen in the front group. Holland isn’t particularly windy but it is exposed. With an extensive coastline and above all, a lot of flat terrain, it means that you notice ever breeze. But you certainly get windy days too.
The film shows waaier training as a group of riders try to cope with winds at Gale Force 7. Even holding onto the bike looks difficult.
Personally I’d have stayed at home but clearly the Dutch don’t. Instead these junkyard dogs head out, film the ride and come home to dub it with some fantastic Euro techno.
