The women’s Tour de France returns after a 33-year absence – fr


  • The women’s Tour de France is set to be relaunched after a 33-year absence, race director Christian Prudhomme told The Guardian.
  • The last women’s race took place in 1989.

    The women’s Tour de France will return in 2022, confirmed race director Christian Prudhomme. After 33 years of absence, a women’s race will take place after the men’s race next year.

    The Tour de France women’s race ran from 1984 to 1989, but was canceled because Prudhomme had to make sure the event was not losing money and had a permanent fixture in the race calendar.

    Talk to The Guardian, Prudhomme said, What we want to do is create a race that will stay the course, that will be put in place and will stand the test of time. This means that the race cannot lose money.

    “Today, all the women’s races that we organize make us lose money.

    If it makes money, that’s great, but you don’t have to lose money or it will end like the Tour in the 80s and he will die.

    If that balance had been struck then, we would now be on our 35th Women’s Tour. The challenge is to build a breed that can live for 100 years. That’s why we want him to follow the Men’s Tour, so that the majority of channels that broadcast the Men’s Tour will also cover him.

    The men’s Tour de France will take place from July 1 to 25, 2022.
