Stage 1 - Rotterdam to Bruxelles - 224km
The comment of Christian Prudhomme
After leaving Rotterdam, riders will head for the Zeeland polders for the first part of the stage, with an itinerary sandwiched between land and sea. They will then cross Flanders and pass through Antwerp and Malines before arriving in Brussels via the town of Meise where Eddy Merckx lives. This is a stage for sprinters that should meet with massive public acclaim.
