Demi Vollering might be worth €1 million a year, if the rumours are true, but the Dutch champion wasn't flaunting wealth as she previewed the final stages of the 2024 Tour de France Femmes. Instead, she and her partner, Jan, explored the route and camped in their van with their dog, Flo, eating al fresco and sleeping under the stars instead of in hotels.

"Between races, you're in hotels so much, so I love getting away with the RV and getting back to basics," Vollering told Nos.nl.
