Description

The Charly Gaul cycle path starts in Ellange-gare on the PC7 and continues to the Centre circuit in Hesperange (PC1).

The PC14 cycle track is dedicated to Charly Gaul, a versatile Luxembourgish cyclist, who was the winner of the Tour de France in 1958, as well as the Luxembourg cyclo-cross champion. His abilities as a pure climber when the road rises earned him the nicknames of the "Winged Climber" or the "Angel of the Mountains". He is known as one of the greatest climbers of the century. He also won the Giro d'Italia in 1956 and 1959. He was particularly fond of bad weather conditions, in which he managed to create huge gaps and upset the rankings.
