Tour de France Grand Départ Copenhagen 2022

The 2022 Tour de France was the 109th edition of the legendary bicycle race and was originally scheduled for 2021, but was postponed one year due to the pandemic. The race started in Copenhagen on July 1st and ended with the final stage on the Champs-Élysées, Paris on July 24th. Denmark’s Jonas Vingegaard won the competition and was celebrated at a homecoming event in Copenhagen on July 27. For the Danish leg of the race, Grand Départ Copenhagen 2022, as well as the initial team presentations and homecoming event, Creative Technology delivered no less than 13 mobile LED screen trailers, sized from 81 to 21 sqm, with a total of 30 events. We also supplied 14 audio setups on the various locations along the route – the largest for an audience of over 10 000 people.

Karel Lemahieu, Project Manager at CT, comments: “What I liked most about the project was the size of it. Working in different locations nation-wide, with many different clients and project managers at the same time – but still for the same big project was very rewarding! The biggest challenge was the time schedules. A small delay in one place, could cause a major delay in the next place. But all-in-all, all screens and audio systems worked in time, and the clients where satisfied!”

Congratulations to all riders and a special congrats to Denmark!
