When leaving Brussels, the peloton will already have in mind the perspective of climbing the Muur van Geraardsbergen that was already on the course of Eddy Merckx’s first Tour in 1969. After a u-turn in Charleroi, the riders will tremble on a cobbled sector. They will go by the famous Butte du Lion field that would be fatal to Napoleon’s troups during the battle of Waterloo. The final part will then take them on the streets of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre where young Eddy had conquered his first Yellow jersey.
