Kiwi cyclist Greg Henderson's wait for a Tour de France ride finally ends overnight.
He'll start in the grand tour, which begins with a 6.4km prologue in Belgium, where the first three stages will be held.
Henderson will be the 99th rider to start - in the race's 99th edition.
Meanwhile, defending champion Cadel Evans says he's ready to go back-to-back.
He says he's had a quiet start to the year, but is ready to go for the race and well prepared.
The prologue winds around the streets of the city centre of Liege.
