Edition 106 of the Tour de France is set to start in Brussels on Saturday, the 6th of July 2019. The Grand Départ in the Belgian capital is a tribute to Eddy Merckx. The five times winner took his first victory in La Grande Boucle in 1969, so it’s the 50th birthday of that win. Brussels hosted the departure of the Tour de France once before – in 1958. On Sunday the 28th of July, the 2019 Tour de France concludes on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. (Slideshow route/profile)
