The town of Landgraaf will honour Erik Dekker on Monday, April 25. As a three-time winner of the Ronde van Nederland and a two-time winner of the RvN's queen stage in Landgraaf, Dekker will get a street named after him, suitably called "Erik Dekker passage".

He will open the street himself on April 25. Jan Janssen and Hennie Kuiper will also be present. The ENECO Tour, which forms part of the ProTour this year, will be raced between August 3-10 this year. Landgraaf will host the finish of stage 3 on August 6, and the start of stage 4 on August 7.
