This year the Tour de France will be leaving from Brussels, the opportunity to celebrate to first victory 50 years ago of the greatest cycling champion of all times, Eddy Merckx.
A historic moment that will be hailed by Autoworld with a big exhibition recalling the history of the cycling sport since its débuts with three major themes:
- 1819 - 2019 with a 200-year history of the greatest champions.
- 1919 - 2019 with the gallery of the 100 years of the yellow jersey.
- And 1919 - 2019 also with a page exclusively dedicated to the greatest Belgian champions.
Loads of emotion in sight for each visitor, as they come across bicycles of former champions, their jerseys, their trophies, old rare posters and various historical documents. More than 800 unique objects, rarely or never exhibited before.
