"Our three weeks of racing in Holland will start tomorrow. I do love going to Holland but three weeks is for sure a test. In comparison to most of my team mates I love going to Holland and try to enjoy the craziness over there. It helps that those races are mainly flat and that suits me but there is a lot more to it to be good at them. I remember a former team mate of mine coming over there and being pretty full of herself as those races were all flat and seeing some of her opponents made her think she has it all covered. It was really enjoyable seeing her mountain butt being kicked so badly and her coming home crying and not finishing the Tour. I think she changed her mind about the “easiness” of the flat races and decided to not be part of them anymore."
