Courageous and brave is what Johnny Hoogerland is. "The Bull of Beveland" made a comeback after a horrific crash on stage 6, 2011 Tour. A French television car knocked him and Juan Antonio Flecha off their bikes, with Hoogerland flying into a barbed wire fence. Hoogerland got up, bleeding and bravely made it to the finish to claim the KOMs jersey, standing on the podium with blood dripping down his legs and tears dripping down his cheeks.
