In the final phase of the race, the participants will have to climb the Cauberg an extra time. Afterwards, they're heading for the Geulhemmerberg (970 m., average level 7.9%), after which they will be driving in the direction of Maastricht. Via the Bemelerberg (900 m.average level 7%) and Sibbe they will return to Valkenburg where they will have to face the Cauberg another - fourth and last - time.
