Annemiek van Vleuten was born on Sunday after the eighth stage in the Tour de France Femmes honored for her stage victory and then the overall victory in the Tour. The leader of Movistar beamed when the Wilhelmus was played and then got hold of the microphone.
“It is unbelievable to win at La Planche des Belles Filles, with so many people! The Tour de France Femmes is alive, this week was fantastic,” said Van Vleuten. “I want to thank the organization for putting this race back on the calendar. They did that very well. All the fans along the road and in front of the television just made it more special. I had goosebumps driving up here.’
