If anyone fancies a watch. Hilly Holland if that's possible.
Anyhow, more climbs than the Amstel.
About 75kms to go:

    Limburg's barely Holland ;)

    Any notable starters?

    Pavel Brutt seems to be in the break.

    Uumm, Thomas de Gendt, Denis Galimzyanov and Michael Matthews are about the top of the card.

    I did the sportive today, and it's very possible. I'm knackered.

    The Volta has 2250m of climbing over a 195km course in a country where the highest point is around 300m above sea level. There's barely a flat road to be had. It's a hard race - only about a quarter of the riders finished. Brutt was very strong and had a good win.
