    Women’s Race Added to Tour de France

    Women’s Race Added to Tour de France

    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESSFEB. 2, 2014


    On July 27, the Tour de France race will host La Course by Le Tour de France — a one-day women’s competition staged hours before Tour riders race on the same circuit to finish the three-week event on Paris’s Champs-Élysées. Tour organizers said they hope to make the women’s competition “one of the most decisive races of the season.” Until now, the 110-year-old Tour has been almost exclusively a male preserve.

    Excellent news. Hopefully, this can be expanded to more days of women's racing in the TdF.
