Rabobank suffers a loss

The Rabobank team had some bad news on Sunday morning, when it found out that Stijn de Jaeger, the son of team soigneur Antoine de Jaeger was killed in a car accident on Saturday evening. Stijn often came to watch races, and was even there on Saturday to see Het Volk. His death was a shock to the team, most of which knew him. "This morning at breakfast, everyone was heavy hearted," said director Adri van Houwelingen to De Telegraaf. "We even considered not starting, but most of the guys wanted to ride. Whatever happened, the race today was of lesser interest."
