French time trial champion Audrey Cordon-Ragot (Trek-Segafredo) will be at the Palais des Congrès on Thursday for the presentation of the inaugural Tour de France Femmes and the versatile veteran knows the moment that Marion Rousse unveils the route will be one of the significant moments in women’s cycling.  

The eight-stage event will start in Paris on July 24, at the conclusion of the men’s race, and Cordon-Ragot is hopeful that organisers ASO will provide a balanced race route that caters to different riders' needs.
