"On Saturday it’s the Boels Rental Ronde van Drenthe, the first round of the 2014 Road World Cup. Rabo-Liv rider Annemiek van Vleuten dropped into the Café to tell us all about the race, how she feels now she’s racing with both legs again, winning a new floor, and more. And after the interview, we’ll tell you how you can watch her race Drenthe."

"Perhaps the most interesting part of Vos’ bike are her chainrings. The Dutch World Champ has been a long-time Rotor athlete, enjoying a relationship that started when she first began racing. “It started off really grassroots,” Rotor explained to Cyclocross Magazine. “That was just over eight years ago. Marianne was a young girl, she was still a junior in the Netherlands, and one of our friends knew Marianne, she was racing for Van Tuyl, which was a small custom bike manufacturer in the Netherlands, and we threw on the ’cross rings, and she won that race. And after that, she just kept on winning and winning.”"
