from cyclingnews.com: Team CSC's Karsten Kroon took the top of the all Dutch podium on stage two of the Vuelta a Castilla y León, rocketing to the win at the end of a tough cobbled climb in the final kilometres. Kroon bested Rabobank's Thomas Dekker and Bauke Mollema in the finale. The sprinters spoiled the last-minute attack by Euskaltel-Euskadi's Sammy Sanchez, who attacked up the steepest part of the climb but could not hold the lead.

Good to see the local pro doing well. Now if I could get VS to show more than Cyclism Sundays, I'd be set.
