Boom wins opening post Tour crit in Holland

Lars Boom (Rabobank) has won the Boxmeer criterium, the Dutchman defending his title after also taking victory last year. In second was Tour de France hero Johnny Hoogerland (Vacansoleil-DCM) who was received extremely well by the crowds in his first race back in Holland.

Rob Ruijgh (Vacansoleil-DCM) animated the early laps of the race, with a solo move staying away for a long time. However, Boom and Hoogerland formed a formidable chase duo and passed the fading Dutchman late in the race.

Dags na de Tour is part of the Post-Tour criterium series.
