The nine riders are: Michael Boogerd, Jan Boven, Marc Lotz, Addy Engels, Steven de Jongh, Thorwald Veneberg, Geert Verheyen (Bel), Mathew Hayman (Aus) and Grischa Niermann (Ger).

Dutch not sure about broadcasting the Giro

Dutch NOS TV have not yet decided whether to broadcast the Giro d'Italia, which starts next Saturday in Groningen in the Netherlands. The reason being is that the cost of purchasing the rights from sender RAI could be too high. According to a spokeswoman for NOS (as quoted in Algemeen Dagblad), it is "not unusual" to negotiate about broadcasting an event this close to the starting date.

"Sometimes it's decided on the day that it begins," said the spokeswoman, who did not say how much it would cost to broadcast the Giro.
