Saturday’s Ronde van Drenthe, won by Alexander Wetterhall as part of a Team NetApp-Endura 1-2-3, was held in dangerous rain-lashed conditions on the Dutch pavement.

Overnight snow and ice led to the cancellation of the standalone race, which formerly made up part of a two-day event with the Ronde.

“It snowed overnight and particularly in the region of Emmen, where the men were going to start, it is impossible to race,” organiser Femmy van Issum told De Telegraaf.

“It was not an easy decision to take when everything was ready, but the safety of the riders is paramount.”
