The Boels Rental Ladies Tour will be held from August 28-September 2 in the Netherlands. The event marks the third to last round of the UCI Women's WorldTour, with two other remaining events at the two-day Madrid Challenge in Spain and the one-day Tour of Guangxi in China.
The race begins with short individual time trial of just 3.3km that will set the tone for the six-stage race. The parcours covers narrow roads, short climbs, crosswinds and technical courses that will play a role in the overall ranking.
Last year, Annemiek Van Vleuten won the overall title on home soil ahead of compatriots Anna van der Breggen and Ellen Van Dijk.
