Dutch national time trial championships

Unlike many other European nations, who have their time trial championships in the same week as the road races, which are traditionally the last weekend before the Tour, the Dutch time trial championships will take place on August 15, in Zaltbommel, about 55 kilometres north of Eindhoven and 70km east of Rotterdam.

The parcours for the elite men and women is 22.28 kilometres long, but the men have to go around twice for the full distance of 44.56 kilometres.

The women's race starts at 17:00, while the men hit the course at 17:45. Among the men's contenders are Thomas Dekker and Rick Flens of Rabobank.
