The prologue 
Individual Time-trial
Saturday June 30
- 6.4 km
1,080,000 inhabitants (Province of Liège)
Just opposite the boulevard d’Avroy, where the finishline of the prologue will be staged, is the rue Sainte-Marie, home to the headquarters of the Liegeoiscandidature for the 2017 International Exposition.Based on a unifying concept “Connect the world,connect the people”, this candidature receivedunanimous support from the start from all levels inthe country. Since then, thanks to a campaign “I signfor…” the population has thrown itself behind theproject, an essential condition of its success. The sitechosen is Coronmeuse to the north of Liège, the sameplace where in 1939 another International Exposition,dedicated to water, had to be prematurely interrupteddue to the Second World War while in 1905, Liègewelcomed a world fair that attracted 7 million visitors.Whether the 2017 Expo is given to Liege or not, - thedecision will be made next November - large scaleurban projects will be launched like the return of thetram, the development of the district in front of thenew Gare des Guillemins and the creation of an eco-district on the very Expo site.
10 times stage town - 192,000 inhabitants (Liégeois)
The Parc d’Avroy, a landscaped park in the centre ofLiège, is located on an artificial island. At one time,the Meuse and the Ourthe Rivers stretched like armsthrough the city. Navigation around the town wasdifficult and the risk of flooding was a permanentthreat. In the early nineteenth century, the Avroy river,a former branch of the Meuse, was therefore filled inand it was in 1880 that the Park was expanded to itspresent size. Many paths cross the tree planted lawnsand there is also a pond, a bandstand and severalmonuments and statues. Park attractions include astatue of Charlemagne by the Liégeois sculptor LouisJehotte. Two other monuments are adjacent to thestarting line of the prologue. On the left hand sideis the National Monument to the Resistance, by thearchitect Paul Etienne and sculptor Louis Dupont. Onthe right hand side is the bull-tamer, more commonlyknown as Li Tore (the bull), the work of Léon Mignon,a traditional meeting place for many Liégeoisassociations and student gatherings.
