This Year’s Tour De France Passed Through Spa-Francorchamps

It takes Formula 1 cars just a few seconds to tackle Belgium’s iconic Eau Rouge/Raidillon complex at Spa-Francorchamps, but the complex definitely looks a lot tougher on a bicycle.

Seeing loads of fans lining the legendary Spa-Francorchamps track as some of the world’s best riders cycled through Eau Rouge and Raidillon was a pretty cool sight to see.

The circuit played host to the Tour de France on Monday as part of its third stage, which went from Verviers in Belgium to Longwy in France, via Luxembourg.

A very different kind of event for a race track to be used for, but an awesome one nonetheless and a great way to merge two hugely popular sports.

While Eau Rouge/Raidillon may have been tougher for the riders competing, it did get a bit easier for them when they got to the downhill section of Rivage.
