As this is only the second time that Le Tour de France begins in Brussels, Belgium, guests can be assured that the atmosphere at the start of Stage 1 will be electric. This race day also marks two major anniversaries - 100 years of the iconic race leader's yellow jersey, and 50 years since Brussels local Eddy Merckx won the first of his five Tour de France titles. The circuit starts near Bozar, loops out from the capital, down to Chaleroi and back up again. The route includes what is arguably Belgium’s most iconic climb.
