Vuelta first stage / prologue

Yesterday was the first stage of the Vuelta, a time trial on the TT track in Assen. 40000 people turned up to watch, and 10000 took part in the "tour version" of the race on Saturday morning.

There are also other videos of the tour version of the race, and some of the events at the TT circuit immediately beforehand, including police motorcyclists doing stunts, and an interview with Erik Dekker a few days beforehand.

An interview with the Swiss winner, Fabian Cancellara can be seen at 2:45 in this video.

I used to travel over to watch the motorbike racing in Assen. I stayed in the small hotel on Stationstraat. Also drank far too much Amstell in the Hotel De Jonge and the 'Sandberg' pub?

Lovely town, would love to include it on my upcoming Tour De Nederlands cycle trip next year.
