Stage 1 Utrecht - Utrecht
During the first stage, the cyclists will race through the streets of the Dom city (Utrecht) during the team time trial.
The teams will start at the Jaarbeurs and then cycle east through the city center. After the technical first part of this course, they will race along the Singel over the Maliebaan, the oldest bicycle lane in the Netherlands. The route will go at full speed to Overvecht, where the teams will make a loop towards Leidsche Rijn. This will be the spot for spectators to see their cycling heroes pass by twice. After leaving the new Leidsche Rijn Center, the teams will head for the finish. From the fly-over a real team sprint will take place until they cross the line at the Jaarbeursplein. In total, the team time trial is 23.7 kilometers long.
