Why does this road even exist

Cyclo cross is not allowed and should have got Froome banned.

I'm glad to learn that a stage that already looked like a motherfucker (but not a GC motherfucker) on paper also had really lovely weather. Gotta somehow cancel out the fact that this Vuelta is three stages short

I'm glad that Terpstra found a way to get his name on the screen without crashing horrifically

I don't recall if they race the final stage of this one or if it's a tour-style precession. Someone remind me

The latter

I don't know if I navigated PCS correctly, but this is the only Dutch rider I could find who retired in 2011 exactly (depending on what "over 9 years" means, 2010 would also be up for grabs). And he was 34 at the time, so idk

e: 2010 gets us these extra three guys:

https://www.procyclingstats.com/rider/gerben-lowik Rabobank

My money is also on Knaven, given that he retired in the middle of the season, and also that he then almost immediately became a directeur sportif for Team Sky

e: beaten

That was the most fun part of this data dive: seeing all the old team names and all the old riders from that era and going " it could have been all of them"
