A second day in the Netherlands, and all the usual pitfalls of that nation’s roads apply; crosswinds have the potential to blow the race apart, and excessive road furniture will make for a stressful day for the riders, with the necessity of staying towards the front meaning crashes will be an unfortunate inevitability.

That said, this is another entirely flat day of racing, meaning that a bunch sprint is pretty much guaranteed.
