Probably the hilliest day of the first week, this stage offers the chance for someone to steal a march on the race lead.
A few days in the King of the Mountains jersey is also up for grabs, with four low-category climbs on this circuit around the Grand Duchy.
A small group will no doubt get away. The question is: can they stay there until the end?
Previously: Miguel Indurain's record-breaking 1992 time trial up and down a dual carriageway was awesome. Portugal's Acacio da Silva won a stage similar to this year's course in 1989.
Don't miss: The cosmopolitan, fortified heart of Luxembourg City itself.
Food and drink: Luxembourg wine is white, light and usually characterised by a high degree of acidity. It is apparently ideal for slimmers and diabetic people because of its lack of body.
