The Tour de France for women is back, and it was about time.
We had the chance to see this new course over 8 stages which will be contested by 22 teams, and what a nice competition it will be starting in Paris on the 24th of July next year.
After some flat stages, the race will tackle a difficult stage over white gravel roads, then some hillier stages before ending with two real mountain stages in the mountains of the Vosges, with a very hard and spectacular finish of the race on the famous Planche des Belles Filles.
The big question: Who can challenge and try to beat the big favorite, Annemiek Vanvleuten?
We will find out at the end of July.
