'Round' wins for Rabobank

With his impressive stage victory in the UCI ProTour race Tour of Poland, Thomas Dekker has given the Rabobank Cycling Team its 400th road race victory in the ten-year history of the team.

Dekker, who just turned 21, was 8 seconds faster in the 19 kilometres long final mountain time trial than American Bobby Julich and 25 seconds faster than number 5 and Rabobank teammate Pieter Weening.

In a similar impressive way, on Saturday Lars Boom rode to the 350th victory of the second Rabobank team, the U23 development squad. Boom, 20 years old, won the sprint in the first part of the second stage of the Tour de la Somme in Abbeville, France, by beating the experienced French professional Stéphane Pettileau amongst others.

The elite cyclo-cross riders of Rabobank will soon reach a milestone number of 250 victories. The count is 246 since Sven Vanthourenhout won in Dudzele, Belgium, last weekend.
