For the very first time since his race accident 2,5 years ago, which left him in a coma for 7 months and from which he miraculously awakened, former rider Stig Broeckx visits a cycling race.<br />
Driven around in the VIP-van of his former Lotto-Soudal team with driver (former Flanders winner ) Eric Vanderaerden (138 career wins!!) sitting next to him.<br />
As they stop halfway up the Col de Peyresourde, (mainly Belgian) people spontaneously walk up to the car to greet Stig, who has become an inspiration to many because of the way he fights back to a 'normal life'.<br />
