Rabobank: Team Profile

Oscar Freire 2007

Rabobank

UCI ProTour team

Rabobank has perhaps one of the strongest teams in the ProTour, with the potential to win any type of race.

Oscar Freire and Nick Nuyens have the one-day Classics covered, whilst Robert Gesink, Denis Menchov, Laurens Ten Dam, Bauke Mollema and Stef Clement can be relied on for the stage-races.

It will be interesting to see how Lars Boom fares after making the transition to a full-time road rider. The former World Cyclo-cross Champion is also the current Dutch road and time trial champion. Tom Stamsnijder is also a talent, joining the team from the now defunct Gerolsteiner squad.
