5 conclusions from La Course by Le Tour de France – .


It was an early start for the women’s peloton on Saturday for the eighth edition of La Course by le Tour de France. The race started at 8:20 am EU time, but it was a symbol of the attitude that has haunted the race from day one. The women’s racing hotels were located more than an hour from the start and the men occupied the best located accommodations. A few painful alarms at 5 am later, and the women’s peloton converged in Brest for the next round of the Women’s World Tour.

Despite La Course’s annual denunciations as a lackluster nod to equality from ASO, the race itself is still far from missing. Saturday was no different, and with wall-to-wall coverage, viewers were able to witness the non-stop attrition of the women’s races as the relentless attacks came and went even before the final fireworks display on the Côte de the Wolf Pit. In the end, it was the apparently unstoppable juggernaut that is Demi Vollering (SD Worx) who beat none other than Marianne Vos (Jumbo-Visma) to win at Landerneau.
