The 2012 Tour de France will start with a prologue from the Belgian town of Lige, organizers announced on Friday. Details of the race will be revealed on November 18 during a presentation attended by former champions Eddy Merckx and Bernard Hinault. The Tour de France already started in Lige in 2004. When Lige hosted the Grand Dpart in 2004, Fabian Cancellara won the prologue for his first big international victory. Due to the London Summer Olympics starting in July, the 2012 Tour will start a week earlier with the Lige prologue set to take place on Saturday June 30.
