NETHERLANDS VDL Bus & Coach BV and Rabo Wielerploegen BV have signed a four-year collaboration contract.

As part of the agreement, two Jonckheere JSV-134 coaches have been delivered to the Rabobank Cycling Team. They provide exceptionally comfortable transport to each stage and are equipped to provide the cyclists and support staff with every possible convenience.

A powerful generator provides air conditioning and power when the coach is not running. The extra large baggage compartment includes a washing machine for laundering bike clothing while on the road and can accommodate eight bicycles.
