May 13 | This episode of Kilometre 0 focuses on one of the unsung heroes in the peloton, Maarten Tjallingii, who stepped into the spotlight during the Giro d’Italia’s opening weekend in the Netherlands.

Tjallingii lives in Arnhem, so he had every incentive to attack during stages two and three. Over the course of stages two and three, he spent more than 350 kilometres off the front. Among his prizes was a day in the Giro’s blue king of the mountains jersey.

Let’s meet Maarten Tjallingii.
