Watch the second stage of the Tour de France 2015 on Sunday 5th July.
Stage 2: Utrecht / Zélande, 166KM
For the first time, the Tour de France will experience offshore racing! The harbours and beach resorts of France have offered prestigious finishes by the sea. But only the Netherlands can allow to design a finish line “in the sea”, at the heart of the Zeeland Delta. This unlikely geographical situation will mainly alert the title contenders: risks of echelons are to be highly considered.
- Christian Prudhomme
Zélande is the place for kitesurfers and lovers of wide open spaces. The TDF route connects the islands and peninsulas of the Zeeland Delta and has quite a few references in terms of cycling. The peloton of the Tour paid a visit back in 2010 after leaving Rotterdam. Since then, the riders have witnessed the unique scenery during the World Ports Classic that goes through the roads of this almost always windy territory.
Freshly prepared food, craft beers and Squaremile coffee available.
