Juliette Labous (Team DSM) has said a top five result is her ‘most realistic’ ambition at the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift ahead of a climb-heavy final weekend that should suit the French climber. 

Labous is currently seventh on GC, 1:19 down on yellow jersey Marianne Vos (Jumbo-Visma), having lost a few more seconds on Friday when Vos took bonus points with the stage 6 victory.
