Friday 17 May: 50 days to go
Only 50 days to go before the first stage of the Grand Départ!
The Manneken-Pis will get in on the act! Through to 19 May, this little statue symbolic of Brussels will be wearing the Yellow Jersey from 1958 that he wore at the Exhibition Universelle! He’ll wear it again from 4 to 7 July.
On the same day, the results of the Tour Dictation will be announced: suspense for all the children who took part!
An evening celebration will be organised on Place De Brouckère in honour of the anniversary of Eddy Merckx’s first victory 50 years ago. A retrospective set to music will retrace the highlights of our champion’s career from 1969 to the present. With “The Magician” as DJ to finish the evening, there’s bound to be a magical atmosphere!
