The German called the final stage "a nice and quiet day on the bike".

"I must say it was quite unusual to ride in the Netherlands and don't face any strong winds," Kittel said. "The guys rode a perfect race today; we took the front early, because we knew we had to be there before the last kilometer on this type of finish. I'm happy I could capitalize on my team's fine job and get a nice victory two weeks from the start of the Tour de France, especially after the bad luck I had on the first road stage here."

Katusha-Alpecin's José Gonçalves not only sealed the overall victory, but padded his lead over Primoz Roglic (LottoNl-Jumbo) by three seconds by nabbing the time bonus at the intermediate sprint. While his team had to fight to keep the race together, the Portuguese rider was able to seal his first stage race win since last year's Tour of Turkey.

"I am very happy. This is my first GC win for this tour and I want to thank my team for everything they did. They were very strong today and did such a good job," Gonçalves said.

Laurens de Plus (Quick-Step Floors) was third overall.
