Luxembourg is widely associated with the cycling race and is therefore well known and respected abroad. Altogether, in 2017, five international competitions will have wholly or partly included routes in Luxembourg. The most famous and most popular race is certainly the Tour de France. In 2017, two stages will once again go through the country. This is already the eighth time that the “Grande Boucle” has stopped off in Luxembourg. On 3 July, the riders will cut across Luxembourg from north to south over 115 km. On 4 July the fourth stage will start from Mondorf-les-Bains racing along the Mosel up to the French city of Vittel in the Vosges region.
