    Internationale Delta Profronde, Netherlands

    These photos were taken by Reinier Meijer's father Frans (Reinier is a 14 years old and helps me sometimes). The photos are of low quality because they were taken on a disposable camera. But they are still worth looking at. The atmospheric effect suits the region the race was in!
