On Wednesday, the official route of the Tour de France 2015 was presented in Paris. The director of the Tour, Christian Prudhomme traveled to Seraing accompanied by the provincial authorities to present the two stages that will pass through the Liège Province. The third stage will begin in Antwerp and end for the first time at the Mur de Huy, a slope of 1.3 km at 9.6%.
For Christian Prudhomme, “the hierarchy determined on the line will define the form “of each cyclist. “The cyclist who conquers the Wall will be one of the frontrunners.” The next day, the peloton will travel 221km from Seraing to Cambrai.
In the Liège province, it will be possible to see the Tour in the communities of Lijsem, Hannuit, Burdinne, Keyboard, Modave, Marchin, Huy, Seraing, Engis and Amay. This is the eighteenth year since 1948 that the Tour has passed through Liege, including a great start in 2012.
