With nine riders eligible to ride for The Netherlands in the Men's World Championship Road Race in Madrid next month, national coach Egon van Kessel is starting to form the team. Leon van Bon (Davitamon-Lotto), Max van Heeswijk (Discovery Channel), Erik Dekker and Michael Boogerd (Rabobank) are all virtually certain to go, along with Pieter Weening (Rabobank) as long as he can keep his form. And after his win in yesterday's Dutch Time Trial Championships in Zaltbommel, it looks extremely likely that Thomas Dekker will take one of the two time trial spots. Joost Posthuma, currently riding in the Deutschland Tour, is tipped for the other spot.
