Bishop Frans Wiertz of Roermond will welcome Tour de France riders when the race arrives in Valkenburg, July 4, according to Dutch news agency ANP. The third stage of the Tour covers 216km from Esch-sur-Alzette to Valkenburg in the Netherlands, and Bishop Wiertz plans to be at the finish. However, he will not bless the riders, as that ceremony will be performed before the prologue. Rather, Bishop Wiertz intends to meet the riders informally.
