#TCRNO5 // DEPART
LOCATION | GERAARDSBERGEN, BELGIUM |
RACE STARTS | FRIDAY 28th JULY 2017 |
The fifth edition of the race will start again on the fabled cobbles of the Muur van Geraardsbergen at 10pm on the evening of the 28th July. The atmosphere created by the people of Geraardsbergen for No.4 was incredible, as was the support from the city and Visit Flanders. The cobbles and torches are becoming an icon of the start and we are looking forward to the same again and will be putting all our efforts into making it better than ever.
At 22:00 the race will begin with a parade circuit starting in the marketplace in Geraardsbergen (by the Town Hall and the Manneken Pis) with police and control cars in escort.
Spectators meanwhile will make their way up the Muur and light their torches. The circuit will be neutralised at 25km/h until it reaches the marketplace once more after which the race will be on and the riders will complete one climb of the de Muur under race conditions. Once riders reach the Kapel on the Muur then they will be free to follow their own route.
