There is another Junior Youth Tour held in the Netherlands – in Achterveld.
Much smaller than the Jeugdtour Assen but actively looking for more participants from overseas.
23rd – 28th July this year for those aged 12-16.
For those who have read Nicole Cooke’s autobiography this is where she used to race in the Summer – she won in 1998 and 1999.
There is a another option which is the International Belgian Youth Tour, which takes place 6th to 8th July. Visit the website www.ibyt.be for more information and to register.
