Why The Dutch Headwind Cycling Championships Are Difficult And Amazing

At the Oosterscheldekering storm surge barrier in the south Netherlands, the winds are always blowing. It's a good place to stage a bicycle race that is centered around those difficult headwinds, namely the Dutch Headwind Cycling Championships (Nederlands Kampioenschap Tegenwindfietsen). When Tom Scott heard there was a storm coming in just as the cyclists were gathering for the annual race, he caught the first plane in order to witness the mayhem of bicycles against 120-kph winds. The winner this past weekend was Max de Jong, who also won last year.
