Following 1.3 kilometres through town the riders arrive on the wide Noordsingel before the race continues in a similar vein on the Beekweg. This fast and straight section is 2.7 kilometres long. A left-hander ushers in a slightly more winding section, yet the course is still perfect to produce high speeds. Another left bend leads onto the the N270 for another fast section. Back in Venray the roads once again become wider before the finish is on the Raadhuisstraat in the city centre.
