Celebration in Copenhagen

There will be plenty of opportunities to wish the Danish star riders good luck before they compete to win the exclusive yellow jersey in Denmark. A truly historic moment.  Fans can do this at the approx. 1.5-kilometer closed route through inner Copenhagen, where the teams pay tribute before riding onto the stage in Tivoli. This will be the start of the enormous celebration that will unfold in Copenhagen and all of Denmark. TV2 will be broadcasting the show to the whole world.

The team presentation is a collaboration between the City of Copenhagen, Grand Départ Copenhagen Denmark, TV2, and Tivoli. This is the first time ever that Tour de France stages are run in Scandinavia.
