Mijn familie

– My family
The two people I’m most closely related to. They are Kim de Vries, my partner for the past 15 hard years, she cooks the nicest dinners and does the photography for my website. Plus my son Sam van Eijk, he’s a professor, the friendliest guy in the universe next to me and the main reason to rediscover my verworven vaardigheden, my values, myself.

Jan Ullrich

– Ich fraß in Deutschland und radelte in Frankreich

– I crammed in Germany and cycled in France

Der Jan had the unfortunate habit of eating rather much in wintertime and thus getting in his best shape and form by the last week of the Tour… ergo too late. But Jan was cool and basically only got beaten by one person.

Michael Boogerd

– Hij won de rit naar zijn koningin en lachte blote tanden

– He won the ride to his queen and smiled bare teeth

Boogie won on La Plagne in a monstrouos escape during the longest stage that Tour and all I can remember was his smile and necklace.

Fausto Coppi

– Wetens en willens zo alleen als de campionissimo

– Knowingly as lonesome as the campionissimo

Fausto might seemed to be a great champion to most but was often alone in being the complex soul he was. He is one of my favourite riders ever in cycling. Sometimes I feel unconnected and misunderstood.

Giro di Lombardia

– De koers is nog niet gelopen als de bladeren zijn gevallen

– The race isn’t over when the leaves have fallen

it is the last event in the UCI World Ranking calendar, and therefore potentially decisive in that title. Its nickname is “the classic of the falling leaves” (Italian: la classica delle foglie morte).
