Stages ZLM Tour 2022
This edition of the ZLM Tour (June 8-12, 2022) will be the preparation race for the sprinters for the Tour de France. The ZLM Tour begins this year with two stages in the Province of Zeeland. The third stage takes place in the hills of Limburg. Finally, stages four and five will finish in the Province of Brabant. The exact routes and timetables can be found in the ZLM Tour Roadbook.
Stage 2 Veere - Goes
Stage 3 Heythuysen - Buchten
The start at 12:00 hours of the Friday stage takes place in Heythuysen, the municipality of Leudal. Leudal is located between Weert and Roermond. From the center of Heythuysen, the peloton heads south, via Buchten, to find the necessary height meters in the Provence of Limburg. After the Camerig, the riders quickly head back north to finish with three local laps in Buchten.
The finale of this hilly stage is flat and offers another chance for the sprinters.
Stage 4 Rucphen – Mierlo
Stage 5 Made – Rijsbergen
This Sunday, we will start at 12:40 in the municipality of Drimmelen with a neutralized lap on the course of the pro race of Made. For over 75 years, this pro criterium took place on Mondays, after Liège-Bastogne-Liège, and, like the ZLM Tour, always brings some big names to the cycling village.
The ZLM Tour finishes on Sunday afternoon in Rijsbergen.
