The Tour de Luxembourg is an annual stage race in professional road bicycle racing held in Luxembourg. The Tour de Luxembourg is classified as a 2.HC, the highest rating below the World Tour, by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), the sport's governing body. In 2006, the Tour was part of the UCI Europe Tour. Held in late May to early June, the event is sometimes used by riders as a preparation race for the Tour de France.[1]
