Cauberg in 2006 Tour

Next year's edition of the Your de France will feature a stage finish atop the legendary Cauberg in The Netherlands, according to Gazet van Antwerpen. The climb, which has also been used in World Championships and in the Amstel Gold Race, suits powerful but light riders like Davide Rebellin, Danilo Di Luca, Alexandre Vinokourov and Michael Boogerd, and will definitely not favour the sprinters.

The last time that The Netherlands hosted the Tour was in 1996, when the prologue was in Den Bosch. Next year's Tour will also visit Belgium
