The Complete 2008 Cycling Program 150 150 Roderick Derks

A new year, a new plan, a new schedule. And tougher then last year. A few cyclo’s in the Dutch Lowlands and in Belgium. I’ll be trying to ride a good race in the Steven Rooks Challenge and the Shimano Fiets Challenge. Starting from June I will do five weeks of tough racing in France. I expanded the planning of the French cyclo’s compared to last year. In stead of three cyclo’s the plan is to ride seven out of the eleven races of the Grande Trophee, organised by Sportcommunication in France. Like in 2007 the Trophée de l’Oisans is also a part of the program, and offcourse the Ardechoise that starts in Saint Félicien. I’m not doing the 650km but the 420km in three days, because one day later I will do the cyclo in Morzine and I don’t want to get the doink on the Col de Joux Plane. So 2008 promises be a very exiting year!
