This year the EBC was organised on the Mont Ventoux, and the Champ took up the challage after a dissapointing performance in the EBC last year on the Wannereval (Wanne, Belgium). Niks had carefully maintained his good legs after the Pyrenean tour in July. The Champ made an outstanding performance on the Mont Ventoux putting Brown second. With his 1 hour 35 minutes for the climb from Bedoin we congratulate the Champ with his first place.
To make his succes complete Champs girlfriend Marjolein, who chose the Ventoux as her first cycling col ever, made the double complete by winning the ladies competion. Chapeau!
