Without a doubt the Delta Works in Zeeland will offer smashing images once the riders arrive there. But before riders pass through typical Dutch places like Oudewater and Gouda. Next it’s off to Rotterdam, the second largest city of the Netherlands is crossed via Maasboulevard, Hofplein and Coolsingel.
Via the Erasmus Bridge riders leave Rotterdam and head to Goeree-Overflakkee and the Brouwersdam to arrive at the island of on Schouwen-Duiveland. The finish is at the artificial island of Neeltje Jans, located halfway the Oosterscheldekering (or: Eastern Scheldt storm surge barrier) between Schouwen-Duiveland and Noord-Beveland.
In 2010, the Grand Depart was a prologue in Rotterdam won by Fabian Cancellara. The next day the riders went from Rotterdam to Brussels via the islands of Zeeland, with an intermediate sprint at Neeltje Jans. In Brussels, Alessandro Pettachi took the stage.
