Rotterdam was almost completey destroyed by bombing during World War II, therefore rebuilding has resulted in today’s modern skyline. 

The city is a living example of the maxim “necessity is the mother of invention,” since Rotterdam has not only raised itself from the ashes, but has also become a center for innovative architecture. In fact, the tallest buildings in the Netherlands are located here.

The extraordinary climber Alberto Contador said in yesterday’s press conference that the prologue route does not suit his characteristics. Exactly. Today’s route is below sea level!
