Eneco Tour of Benelux (Pro Tour)

Winners, podium, distance, average speed

formerly Tour of the Netherlands (Ronde van Nederland)

The Eneco Tour of Benelux began in 2005 as a result of reinvigorating and reorganizing the Tour of the Netherlands, which was running on hard times. The Tour of Belgium is a co-sponsor of the race. Eneco is a major supplier of gas, electricity and heat in the Netherlands.

The Tour of the Netherlands did not become a regular annual event until 1975. Hence, there are missing years, which are years the race wasn't held, in the race results below.

Distances and average speeds listed in early 1950s editions of the Tour of the Netherlands should be considered approximate.
