Day three is the final stage in the Netherlands and again offers nothing for the flyweight climbing specialists. Beginning and ending in the town of Breda, which is also a first-time host to the race, it features just one category four climb. 

The ascent of Rijzendeweg is 400 meters long and 3.7 percent in slope, and tops out at a towering 25 meters above sea level. The highpoint of the stage comes earlier and is just 29 meters high, but a very gradual rise to that point means it doesn’t even rank as a category four climb. 

There is once again a bonus sprint some 23 kilometers from the line. Without strong winds, the sprinters will be licking their lips at the prospect of a stage win prior to the first rest day.
