After a very successful first edition in 2017,
bringing together 3000 cyclists for a festive cycling race through the streets of the capital,
the City of Brussel reiterates the BXL TOUR!
This year, the BXL TOUR will take place on Sunday, June 17, 2018.
It will be even more unique as it will echo the Grand Depart 2019 of the Tour de France,
which will take place in Brussels from July 4 to 7.
2019 is also the 100th anniversary of the yellow jersey,
of which the record is held by one of Brussels’ most famous residents, Eddy Merckx,
who proudly wore the prestigious jersey 111 times during his racing career!
The Tour’s famous “red car” will be present, and Eddy himself will be
the guest of honour at this event.
The race will begin at the Place des Palais and end at the Atomium, passing through multiple Brussels neighbourhoods and following the same route as the team time trial of the Grand Départ 2019.
As racers cross the finish line, they will be welcomed by an extraordinary view of the Atomium,
as well as by visitors and residents who have gathered at the BIKECITY village
to share in this exciting moment.
For the City of Brussels, the BXL TOUR is also an opportunity
to reaffirm their commitment to supporting and encouraging cycling.
