La Course by Le Tour de France - Overview

Organisers of the Tour de France, ASO, revealed details of their Women’s WorldTour one-day race La Course by Le Tour de France that is currently scheduled to take place on July 19, 2019.

 

The race will shift away from the route that boasted a mountainous race to Le Grand-Bornand this year to a hilly circuit race that is more suited to the puncheurs of the peloton.

 

The women will race along a circuit race, held on a version of the 27km time trial course used for stage 13 of the men's Tour de France. They will complete five laps of the circuit for a total of 120km.

 

The route will include a climb over the Côte d’Esquillot, making the circuit a challenge but one that could suit the one-day Classics specialists and possibly even the sprinters.

 

In 2018, the event returned to a one-day format, a road race linking Annecy and to a summit finish in Le Grand-Bornand, won by Van Vleuten in a showdown against runner-up Van der Breggen.
