I find this sort of stuff fascinating.

Laurens ten Dam seems like a good bloke, at least if you follow his twitter account!

This is a map of everywhere he has been this year. This shows...

His regular training rides around Maastricht
Altitude training routes in Nevada
TdF route
Etc etc

    That's a well travelled cyclist. If I only do half those routes by the time I hang up my cycling shoes I'll be well pleased.

    Interesting. I used to ride a lot of those roads when I lived in Maastricht. Mind you, that trip to Bitburg is a big day out!

    Could have been useful in the Rasmussen case.
  • Interesting to see he reconned the cobbles a few times

    Pretty good going for Denmark. 18 riders from a population of 6 million

    As opposed to 98 riders from a population of 11.2m in Belgium... :P
