Tour of Britain, Kooij not struggling: Fourth straight win

The 21-year-old from Jumbo-Visma won the first four stages, helped by a great Van Aert

Long recognized as one of the most promising sprinters in the world, despite not having turned 22 (he will be on October 17): But what Olav Kooij is doing at the Tour of Britain is truly remarkable. The Dutchman from Jumbo-Visma, who already has 26 victories as a professional, actually prevailed in the first four stages. A consecutive poker game was also thanks to Wout Van Aert: the Belgian actually often made himself available as the last man for Kooij, who never had any competitors in the sprint. Thanks in part to these victories, Roglic and Vingegaard’s team has achieved 56 wins this season: none like them.
