Another 191 km – Julius van den Berg tries to get away on the flat roads in Ulvenhout, because at the end of this stage you can earn points for the mountains classification on the Rijzendeweg. The peloton does not give the wearer of the mountain jersey any space.
Another 193 km – The race director waves the red flag! The third and final Vuelta stage through the Netherlands has finally started. We see Julius van den Berg in his blue and white mountain jersey at the head of the pack. Is he attacking again?
We have never seen a start like this before. After a few meters of cycling, the 181 remaining riders get off their bicycles, and then walk through the Grote Kerk, holding their bicycles. And all for the sake of the picture. The peloton now heads for Ulvenhout for the official start.
The mayor of Breda is about to give the unofficial start of this third stage in the Vuelta. The riders will ride from the Grote Kerk to Ulvenhout, where the ride will start in half an hour. From there, the riders head south to Baarle-Nassau, after which the peloton heads for the Moerdijk. After a long loop through West Brabant, the finish is at the Chassé Theater in Breda around 5.15 pm.
