Compared to last season there is less spread in the age of cyclists that won a race. For example this season no 37 and 38 year old cyclists won a stage. Remarkable is also that for the second season in a row a 26 year old managed to win a stage.

Congrats Ab. Untouchable. Thats ... 3th in a row now ? 4th in total ? The history books are coming closer and closer. Richly deserved: your riders are one by one just fantastic.
Lucky BAM has some really great riders too, so it wasn't totally a walkover.
And Heppie and Eboese ... wow ... awesome battle for place 3. Really liked your leapfrogging. Interesting and exciting to follow, with Schepers almost as white rabbit ... imagine.
And about my team, happy with the good start but my team totally imploded after I had to renew all contracts. Lack of skills and knowledge about negotiations made my riders from 'delighted' to 'blij', at which was immediatly visible in the performances. Where my riders in the begin of the season were fighting for place 4 - 5 at about 2 minutes from the big guys, they started fighting for place 7 - 8 at more then 7 minutes from the winners. So for next season, I have no illusions: my team became weaker, no chance they can compete with BLDN and Droeftoeters.
The Top 6 is exactly the same like last season, by the way. A clear hierarchy in Peloton it is. And 5 teams with all zeros overall ... thats hard.
Heppie, thanks for the weekly stats. Much appreciated ! And interesting tidbits you posted ... proper bookkeeping. Thumbs up.
Up to season 25 now ! Silver anniversary !!

When my legs hurt, I say: “Shut up legs! Do what I tell you to do!”
Congratz Ab Normaal ! By far the strongest again, curious to see how many will follow. This season you even managed to score 2 points more than previous season, so it seems you are still getting better
