MANCHESTER, UK, July 16, 2018 --Tension is thick and the thrills aplenty in the 2018 Tour de France ongoing throughout July in Europe. For those wishing now they could be roadside for the excitement, Sports Tours International has good news.
People can sign up now on Sports Tours International’s website to reserve one or any number of packages that will go on sale soon for witnessing the 2019 Tour de France. Experiences range from riding over the official finish line to start village access, VIP welcomes and receptions and the chance to ride in an official tour car.
The 2019 Tour de France will start in Belgium from Brussels, the capital of the EU and home of NATO and a fascinating fusion of ancient and modern with a beautiful old center mixed with sleek modern buildings. This capital of indulgence – think beer, chocolate and waffles –is where Sports Tours International begins to indulge its guests over the 3-week-long 2019 spectacle. Coincidentally, 2019 is also the centenary of the famous Yellow Jersey first won by the Frenchman Eugène Christophe when he won the stage from Grenoble to Geneva on July 18, 1919. And it’s the 50th anniversary of Tour legend Eddy Merckx’s first victory.
