Koen de Kort asks his 28,000 Twitter followers whether he should get in the breakaway for Friday's stage three at the Dubai Tour
Giant-Alpecin‘s Koen de Kort was part of the four-man breakaway on stage two at the Tour of Dubai, apparently the first time he’s been in one for ‘a while’.
Instead of just retreating back to the peloton for the rest of the race, de Kort seems to be in two minds as to whether he should target the break again on Friday.
So, in this modern era of social media, the Dutchman took to Twitter to ask his 28,200 followers whether he should go out the front.
I’ve never done it, but I imagine being in a small breakaway in a professional bike race is pretty tough, so de Kort may not be particularly enthused about the fact that 90 per cent of respondents (including us) said yes.
I’m also no expert on social media laws, but I assume this now counts as a legally binding contract, so Koen had better get out in that break now or he’ll have hundreds of angry fans after him.
