Johnny Hoogerland – Tour de France rider to know and love

There are many great names in professional cycling – the bluntly classic ‘Christian Knees’ being just one example – but few names are as impressive as Johnny Hoogerland.

Both Hoogerland and Christian Knees are prone to getting into the day’s break. They are usually accompanied by Mickael Delage who is, frankly, a nutcase. His name’s nowhere as good though.
