The  Women's WorldTour resumes at the eighth edition of La Course by Le Tour de France held on Saturday, June 26 in Brest, and in conjunction with the opening stage of the men's Tour de France.

The women's one-day race will start at 8:30 a.m. CET with an expected finish at 11:30 a.m. CET.

It has been one of the most popular events on the Women's WorldTour but this year could mark its last – at least on the top-tier calendar – as it will be replaced by the official launch of the Tour de France Femmes in 2022.

This year's La Course by Le Tour de France also marks the tenth stop on the Women's WorldTour, however, it is the only round of the top-tier series held during the month of June.

Fans can expect an explosive race at La Course by Le Tour de France. 

The women's peloton will race a short 107.4km starting in Brest and finishing with three laps of a 14-kilometre circuit with the finish line atop the Côte de la Fosse aux Loups in Landerneau.

The peloton will begin Brest and race for 59.3km into Landerneau, where each of  the three final circuits includes a climb over the Côte de la Fosse aux Loups. The climb is three kilometres with an average gradient of nearly six per cent. The peloton will climb the ascent three times as part of the finishing circuits, before then tackling it a fourth and final time where the finish line is located at the top.

Don't miss La Course by Le Tour de France as riders defending champion Lizzie Deignan (Trek-Segafredo), Marianne Vos (Jumbo-Visma), Anna van der Breggen (SD Worx), Grace Brown (Team BikeExchange), Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope), and a world-class field go head-to-head on the  streets of Brittany region.
