    At a guess, Erik Dekker?

    Erik Breukink is the last one I'd be properly confident about though.

    Did he ever wear Yellow? He certainly didn't after Breukink.

    Edit: no. The list above says so. :oops:

    If not Mollema then Kelderman or Ten Dam (although would like to see Gesink ploughing up Dutch corner in yellow) This has to be the strongest generation for a while
