Biography

Erik Breukink was a Dutch road racer who started his professional career in 1986. In his Tour de France début in 1987 he won a stage and was second in the youth classification, and he won the white jersey in 1988. Breukink had a solid professional career, placing third at the Tour in 1990, and twice appearing on the podium at the Giro d’Italia, with second place in 1988 following his third in 1987. He was a time trial specialist and good climber which made him a factor in stage races, but his lack of a sprint prevented him from winning many single-day races. After his retirement in 1997, Breukink worked as a television commentator and later became a team manager with Rabobank.
