Olav Kooij (Jumbo-Visma) won the final stage 5 and the final classification of the ZLM Tour on Sunday. Kooij won the bunch sprint ahead of Alexander Salby (Riwal Cycling Team) and Sam Welsford (Team DSM) in Rijsbergen.

Kooij had already won the opening two stages, and with his third on stage 5 he also secured the general classification victory, points classification and the youth classification.

"It was a successful week," Kooij said. "We knew the final victory was up for grabs if nothing crazy happened. With the stage win, we were able to put the icing on the cake. It is great to win all the classifications. We don't race in our own country that often; to have a week like this is wonderful."

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.
