Wouter Mol (born 17 April 1982 in Nibbixwoud[2]) is a professional road racing cyclist from the Netherlands, who rides for the Vastgoedservice-Golden Palace team.[3]

2012 Tour Down Under[edit]

One tradition of the Tour Down Under is that the fans choose an unknown rider and treat him the way they would a star, by mobbing him at hotels and painting his name on the road. The rider must be a non-English speaking domestique who most likely will not get a start at a major race and will simply act as a bottle carrier. For 2012, Vacansoleil-DCM rider[4] Mol was chosen.[5]
