Dekker to ride Dutch championships

Thomas Dekker (Rabobank) will take to the start of the Dutch national championship road race this Sunday after all, according to Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. Dekker had decided earlier to skip the title race in Ootmarsum to focus on his preparation for a possible Tour de France start.

In the Tour de Suisse Dekker was forced to abandon due to a lack of form. Dekker wrote on his website that he has changed his mind and will take part in the race for the red, white and blue jersey.

Dekker is hoping to play a role in the upcoming Tour de France but it is not yet known if he will be part of Rabobank's squad. That decision will be made later in the week.
