Rabobank was more than happy with its performance in the Volta a Mallorca, winning two of the five stages. "Of course it's a good feeling," said Director Sportif Adri Van Houwelingen.
"With two wins in our hand, we can look to the coming races differently. But especially the way the team rode here was promising."
Former World Champion Oscar Freire won the opening race and youngster Thomas Dekker won the third of the five-race series. Van Houwelingen was pleased not only with those two victories, but also with the strong teamwork, the good showing by the team's young riders and the good integration of newcomers Koos Moerenhout and Max Van Heeswijk.
