After Jakub Mareczko celebrated winning the sprint on stage 2 of the ZLM Tour, the Alpecin-Fenix rider was stripped of the result after the race jury decided he had hindered Jumbo-Visma's Mick van Dijke. 

The decision elevated Olav Kooij to stage winner, giving the Dutch rider his second consecutive victory and giving a larger lead in the overall standings, with Elia Viviani (Ineos Grenadiers) climbing up to second at 9 seconds.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
