Ronde van Drenthe

The Ronde van Drenthe is held in a flat part of the Netherlands but the course does have one main difficulty - the 'VAM-berg'. The hill is a man-made berg, the result of a landfill, and the route up this 750m long ascent is narrow and kicks up to over 20% grade. The women hit the VAM-berg three times, and for extra fun will have sprint bonuses at the top. To make the flat route even more challenging, the course has several intermediate sprints and a few cobbled sectors.
