Striking detail was the following, while the assistent of Jan Raas of Rabobank, Adrie van Houwelingen, was riding his car on the track and mean while was talking with his cyclist Koos Moerenhout he touched his cyclist Aart Vierhouten with his bumper.
Aart Vierhouten crashed on the left side of the road on his elbow and was taking Raymond Meijs of Foreldorado Golff with him in his fall. Raymond Meijs has trouble with his back, his pelvis and is suffering from several grazes.
1. Michael Boogerd (Rabobank) 2. Wim van den Meulenhof (Foreldorado-Golff)* 3. Richard Groenendaal (Rabobank) 4. Kurt Van Lancker (Bel-Ipso) 5. Patrick Tolhoek (NL, Amateur)
* Watch him next weekend at the climby track in Meerssen (where the Dutch National Championships are held) - you'll make a good bet!!
