Prologue: Liège > Liège

We start Le Tour in Belgium this year with a 6.4km time trial around the streets of Liège, following the same route used in 2004. Cancellara won the day back then and is described as the “defending champion” of the prologue, having won the last one in 2010.  The first rider on the course will be Tom Veelers (Argos-Shimano) at 2.00pm local time (10.00pm AEST).  Cadel Evans will start in yellow and will be the last off the ramp, at 5.17pm (1.17am AEST). Wake up your neighbours as you yell for Cadel!
