Weening supported by Rabobank and model Kroes

Pieter Weening leads, Giro d'Italia 2011, stage six

Pieter Weening must survive two demanding stages in the Giro d'Italia if he wants to keep the leader's pink jersey. He has support, however, from Dutch super team, Rabobank and top model Doutzen Kroes.

The Victoria's Secret model wrote to Weening yesterday via Twitter after he won the race's fifth leg to Orvieto and took the leader's jersey. Though Kroes lives in New York and Weening races around the world, the two come from the same city in northern Holland, Harkma.
