22.6 kilometres from Pau to Pau that will decide the winner of the yellow jersey

Tour de France Femmes stage 8 start time Tour de France Femmes stage 7 result Day on the Tourmalet – High altitude atmosphere for Tour de France Femmes Tour de France Femmes - everything you need to know

Hello and welcome to Cyclingnews' live coverage of stage 8, the final day of racing at the 2023 Tour de France Femmes!

The final stage consists of a 22.6km time trial starting and finishing in the Pyrenean city of Pau. It's a mainly flat route that runs south out of the city before looping back in after completing a hill in the middle of the course. 

Profiles for stages of the 2023 Tour de France Femmes

Yesterday's queen stage saw Demi Vollering (SD Worx) move into a commanding lead of the overall GC after she destroyed the field up the Col du Tourmalet. It was an emphatic performance that sees her start the final day 1:50 ahead of Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon-SRAM) in second and 2:28 in front of big rival, Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar), in third.

There was some very important skin suit fittings going on for the four jersey wearers late last night, Vollering in yellow, Niewiadoma in polka-dots, Lotte Kopecky (SD Worx) in green and Cédrine Kerbaol (Ceratizit-WNT) in white.

Just under 40 minutes until Marjolein van't Geloof (Human Powered Health) rolls off the start ramp and gets racing underway on stage 8 of the Tour de France Femmes. 

It's stopped for now, but the rain had been falling quite heavily in Pau ahead of the start, so the course may be damp in places. 

SD Worx getting a look at the course. They'll have three options for the stage win today in Reusser, Kopecky and Vollering. The latter may play it safe as the race leader which may hinder her chances at the stage victory, whereas Reusser is the best active TT rider in the world (with Ellen van Dijk not racing due to her pregnancy) and should be going all out in terms of power and through the corners to try and win the stage.

There was another DNS this morning with Mavi Garcia (Liv Racing TeqFind) unable to start the stage due to illness. Full list of abandons below.

Here's how the top-10 on GC looks ahead of the start. Vollering's lead should be insurmountable barring any disaster, but the fight for the podium should be very interesting with Niewiadoma in second and Moolman in fifth separated only by 49 seconds. Kopecky will also be desperate to get on the podium after the climbing performance of her life yesterday.

Van't Geloof has rolled off the start line and the final stage of the Tour de France Femmes in underway!

The riders will be coming thick and fast at first with a new starter each minute for now.

Two Josie's are next to start the final stage, Talbot (Cofidis) and Nelson (Coop-Hitec Products). 

Vittoria Guazzini (FDJ-SUEZ) is the first big name TT specialist to start today, as the U23 TT World Champion from last year in Australia. She'll likely set the early benchmark. 

Among those to start most recently are April tacky (Lifeplus Wahoo), Megan Jastrab (DSM-Firmenich) and Margaux Vigie (Lifeplus Wahoo). 

Early starters heading through some tunnels out of Pau.

Our first few riders should be closing in on the hill at the halfway point which signifies the point where they start looping back around towards Pau and the intermediate time check. 

Teniel Campbell (Jayco AlUla) and Coryn Labecki (Jumbo-Visma) are the next two riders to roll down the start ramp. 

Talbot has set the best early time at the intermediate check of the first four starters. 

Guazzini has unsurprisingly smashed Talbot's time by 33 seconds and she's now the virtual leader on the road. 

The Côte de Bosdarros (1.4km at 6.7%) is the climb at the halfway mark. 

Coming roughly halfway through today's route, the 1.38km Côte de Bosdarros averages 6.7%. @ashleighcycling is the current holder of the @Strava QOM but after 7 hard days of racing, can anyone better her time? 👑⏱️ #TDFF2023 #TDFFdata pic.twitter.com/cAW6fiUNUJ July 30, 2023

First few riders beginning to finish now. 

Guazzini's intermediate time of 17:40 is still holding strong with a lot of riders passing the halfway point. 

Talbot passed Van't Geloof and was the first finisher with a time of 31:42. 

Guazzini takes the lead with a 30:06 finishing time. She may be sat in the hot seat for quite some time. 

Georgie Howe (Jayco AlUla) has just set the second best time at the intermediate point, seven seconds behind Guazzini. She'll be very close come the finish to taking the lead. 

Elena Cecchini (SD Worx) gives us a first look at those interesting Specialized helmets again.

Alexandra Manly (Jayco AlUla) is the next rider to start. IN around four minutes, one of the next favourites for the day will roll off the ramp, Emma Norsgaard (Movistar). She's already won a stage at this Tour and should be right up there again today. 

Norsgsaard will be racing in the fantastic Danish national TT champion's skin suit today.

Maaike Boogaard (AG Insurance-Soudal QuickStep) has just set the third fastest time at the intermediate time check, 26 seconds down on Guazzini. 

Norsgaard is away and straight into the first few corners of the course. 

Howe has finished, but was unable to hold pace with Guazzini in the second half of the course and lost a further 14 seconds. 

We're a couple minutes away from the start of the British national TT champion, Lizzie Holden (UAE ADQ) and the British road race champion, Pfeiffer Georgi (DSM-Firmenich). Both are strong TT riders. 

Mischa Bredewold (SD Worx) rolls off the start ramp with the snood helmet on. 

Boogaard goes into third at the finish, but also loses more than 30 seconds to Guazzini in the second half. 

We're seeing the bloodied knee of Arianna Fidanza (Ceratizit-WNT) who must've crashed off camera. Thankfully she's finished the course, but looked quite banged up. 

We're close to the start of some very strong TT riders in Christine Majerus (SD Worx), Van de Welde (Fenix-Deceuninck), Skalniak-Sójka (Canyon-SRAM) and Lucinda Brand (Lidl-Trek). 

Anna Henderson (Jumbo-Visma) has set a new best time at the intermediate time check of 13:37, three seconds faster than Guazzini. 

Thalita de Jong (Liv Racing TeqFind) has also come within touching distance at the immediate check with a 17:44, just four seconds down on Guazzini and seven down on Henderson. 

Very deserved reward for Kathrin Schweinberger (Ceratizit-WNT) after eight brutal days of racing.

Early leader Guazzini attacking the 22.6km course. 

Vittoria Guazzini Tour de France Femmes stage 8

Here comes Henderson onto the climb. It's going to close between her and Guazzini. 

Guazzini holds on! Henderson came close, but after leading at the intermediate time check, she was unable to hold onto the lead. 

We're close to the start of two massive hitters, Australian TT champ Grace Brown (FDJ-SUEZ) and European Champion Marlen Reusser (SD Worx). They were second and third respectively at the World Championships ITT last year behind Van Dijk who isn't here, so should both be well within the fight for the stage win. 

Six-time French TT national champion, Audrey Cordon-Ragot (Human Powered Health) rolls of the start line and you can be sure of her emptying absolutely everything on this 22km course in front of the French fans. 

Esmée Peperkamp (DSM-Firmenich) and Lucinda Brand (Lidl-Trek) have both started very well in the opening half of the TT and could come close to Guazzini's time come the finish. 

Big gulp and huge focus as Reusser blasts off the start ramp. 

Here's former British national TT champion Henderson emptying the tank on her way to second for now on the 22km course. 

Anna Henderson Tour de France Femmes 2023 stage 8

Huge opening half from Anouska Koster (Uno-X) puts her second at the intermediate time check with a 17:40, just 2.9 seconds down on Henderson. 

Cordon-Ragot has flown past Elise Chabbey (Canyon-SRAM) on the course. 

Skalniak-Sójka nearly goes the wrong way in one of the final corners in the Polish national champion's kit, but she's still finished strong into provisional eighth place. 

Reusser looks magnificent on the TT bike in her European Champion's kit and with her custom TT handlebar extensions (skis). 

Lucinda Brand comes very close to Guazzini's time just nine seconds off the lead, but the Italian holds on and stays in the hot seat. 

New Zealand national TT champ Georgia Williams (EF Education-TIBCO-SVB) on her way to a solid provisional 14th place. 

Georgia Williams Tour de France Femmes stage 8

Brown is spinning at a very fast cadence up the climb in her smallest gear, which is allowing her to stay in her TT position. 

Cordon-Ragot is flying on the course, she takes the lead at the intermediate time check by three seconds on Henderson. 

Brown smashes that intermediate time check with a rapid 17:05. She's got the best time there by 28 seconds, but Reusser is coming. 

With the race kicking off on the course between the TT specialists, the favourites are about to start soon. We're into our last 20 starters now. 

10KM TO GO FOR REUSSER

Reusser goes into a resounding lead the intermediate time check, a further 27 seconds ahead of even Brown. She's absolutely motoring on the course back towards Pau. She's even having to wave team cars out the way because she's going so much faster than the rider ahead of her. 

The next big favourite to start will be Riejanne Markus (Jumbo-Visma), the Dutch national TT champion who smoked both Vollering and Van Vleuten at the nationals just last month.  

Coralie Demay (St Michel-Mavic-Auber93) is also going well and was fourth at the intermediate time check behind only Reusser, Brown and Cordon-Ragot.

Cédrine Kerbaol is about to start in the white jersey. She leads by two minutes ahead of Wyllie in that classification and should be fine to hold onto it given she is also the French national TT champion. 

Cordon-Ragot goes third fastest at the finish after a great ride, with Brown and Reusser and closing in on the line in Pau. 

Brown goes fastest and ends Guazzini's long stint in the hot seat. It's a 29:55 for the Australian national champ at an average speed of 45km/h. She went 40 seconds quicker than the u23 TT World Champion. 

Reusser enters the final kilometre and she's looking set to destroy the leading time and get into the hot seat. 

Reusser absolutely demolishes Brown's great time with an incredible 29:15. That will take some serious beating and she now leads the TT by 40 seconds. 46km/h average speed, rapid to say the least. 

We're into the final 10 riders set to start now.

Wonderful reception from the French crowd for Juliette Labous (DSM-Firmenich) as she rolls off the start ramp. 

Kopecky sets off in her pursuit of the podium. She starts the day 45 seconds behind Niewiadoma in second overall and seven behind Van Vleuten in third. Can she move back into the top three? 

Markus crosses the intermediate check in third, 30 seconds back on Reusser. 

Van Vleuten rolls off the start ramp. Twice she's been TT World Whampion and she's the current Olympic Time Trial champion. She would've wanted to win the overall, but with that out of reach she's surely going to empty the tank in pursuit of the stage win in this her final Tour de France Femmes stage before retirement at the end of the season. 

Can Niewiadoma hold onto second overall? She's got a 38-second lead over Van Vleuten and 45 over Kopecky on GC, but both will be desperate to knock her off the podium. 

ALL RIDERS HAVE STARTED

Vollering sets off in the final stage of the Tour de France Femmes. All she has to do is make it round this 22.6km course in good time and safely to confirm her overall victory of the Tour. 

Here's Reusser holding her magnificent TT position all the way to the line in Pau.

Labous is going well so for and crosses the intermediate time check in fourth, 40 seconds down on Reusser. 

Kerbaol comes home safely and will leave the Tour de France Femmes with the white jersey after an incredible eight days racing. She'll have a long future in the women's pro peloton. 

Markus finishes third after a great effort behind Reusser and Brown, 30 seconds off the time of the European Champion. 

No one will challenge Niewiadoma's lead in the mountains classification with no QOM points available on stage 8, but can she hold onto her second place in the overall? 

Kasia Niewiadoma Tour De France Femmes stage 8

Moolman crosses the intermediate point 52 seconds behind Labous. The French rider started the day 1:01 behind the South African, so it should be very tight in the battle for fifth at the line. 

Kopecky comes through the intermediate check in provisional third, 30 seconds down on Reusser. 

Here's Vollering rolling off the start ramp, looking resplendent in yellow.

Van Vleuten is almost 30 seconds down on Kopecky at the intermediate time check. The podium positions are shifting. 

Niewiadoma is going incredibly well on the climb and she's gone through the time check in fifth, 31 seconds down on Reusser, but importantly only 1 second down on Kopecky. The second half of the course doesn't suit her as much, but she's started very strongly. 

Vollering goes second fastest at the intermediate time check, 12 seconds down on her teammate Reusser.

Labous is roared on in the final kilometre after putting in a fantastic time trial performance. She goes fourth fastest at the finish in Pau and may move up into fifth overall if Moolman is unable to get closer to her time.

Kopecky continues her assault of this course and she's overtaken Moolman in the final 2km. She's virtually on the podium as things stand on the road. 

It's second place provisionally on the stage for Kopecky after smashing the final climb. She has been amazing this whole Tour de France and looks as though she's going to move onto the podium with another top five finish on a stage. 

Labous passes Moolman into fifth overall! What a finishing ride from the French rider. 

it's not the finish Van Vleuten would've dreamt of at this Tour de France as she's about to fall off the podium and into fourth. Kopecky has smashed this final time trial and Van Vleuten with it. It's 12th on the stage for the legendary Dutch rider. 

All of the Movistar team are there to support their leader as she crosses the line after a disappointing final weekend at the Tour. 

Niewiadoma is coming to then line now with the pain all over her face. It's going to be incredibly close with Kopecky all the way to the line for second overall. 

Here comes Vollering!

STAGE FINISH

Demi Vollering wins the 2023 Tour de France Femmes with second place on the final stage.

Marlen Reusser wins stage 8 after a time trial masterclass in Pau!

SD Worx once again proving that they are by far and away the best team in the world. 

It seems as if Niewiadoma has unfortunately for her, fell to third overall on GC by a matter of a few tenths/hundredths of a second. 

Here's what Marlen Reusser (SD Worx) had to say after winning the final stage of the Tour de France Femmes 2023:

"If we can win everything, I can't believe it such great work for SD Worx. That's not my dream, but for the team it is."

"I worked all week for my leaders, so I'm quite tired. I'm really happy with this result."

"I targeted this time trial, but I had also targeted different things so I'm super happy that I managed to win today."

"To be honest, I'm a little bit in disbelief almost. We knew we were strong coming here, we had a very strong shape, but that we could finish it off that way yeah, it's crazy."

Here's what a disappointed Van Vleuten said after not feeling herself on the final stage:

"Of course I'm disappointed that I was not good the last two days. Yeah I was in the battle and I gave it my all. I didn't make any mistake that I can think was not smart or that I did something wrong so I do not know what happened. I was obviously not myself so that's a bit sad in your last Tour de France."

"Yesterday evening I already felt like I would be sick this morning. I was not really sick I didn't really have a higher temperature so I felt like I would give it a go but I knew already that it was yesterday, how I was riding on the Tourmalet, I think people that watch more women's cycling will know that is not my level I can normally have."

"Huge disappointment for myself, for my own performance, but not the team performance that make super nice that we can share the win of Liane [Lippert and Emma [Norsgaard]."

Stage 8 of the Tour de France Femmes 2023

A delighted Demi Vollering spoke after the stage in disbelief at the achievement she added to her already incredible season:

"I think I still, again, cannot believe it."

"Of course I worked hard, but its just not only working hard, it's believing in it and I don't know its so much together and in then you have a dream and you work really hard for it, but also you need to keep yourself a bit calm and find a good balance in your life also, how you do it and keep going and find a relaxed way to do all this."

"I think this year I fell really comfortable or good in what I'm doing and together with Anna van der Breggen, she makes my trainings and yeah I feel like everything comes together and it's just an amazing season for me."

"Actually I was this morning super super relaxed and this made me a bit nervous because I was so relax that I was like 'oo I need to wake up' because you also need to haver those nerves for a time trial, otherwise it's not good. If you have those nerves you can dig deep and it makes you sharp."

Stage 8 of the Tour de France Femmes 2023

Full stage results from the final stage of the Tour de France Femmes, won by Marlen Reusser (SD Worx) in emphatic fashion, with her two teammates, Vollering and Kopecky rounding out the podium on the stage. 

Reusser's victory was SD Worx's fourth of this Tour de France Femmes. They've long been the best team in women's cycling and with the yellow jersey, green jersey and those four victories through four different riders, I think that title will long stick with them.

Yara Kastelijn's (Fenix-Deceunick) incredible week of racing was finished off with the super-combativity prize which she brings home with her stage win. She'll be very prominent at the top level of women's raving for the next few years. What a week of racing for Fenix-Deceuninck.

Confirmation that Kopecky moved up to second overall in GC by a matter 21 hundredths of a second. This was the fifth stage she podiumed in this Tour de France and all those bonus seconds have added up to a fantastic runners-up position in the overall race that no one would've predicted before the Tour started.

PAU, France (AP) — Dutch rider Demi Vollering won the women’s Tour de France for the first time on Sunday while her teammate Marlen Reusser of Switzerland clinched the final-stage time trial.

Although the 26-year-old Vollering was already in a strong position after a dominant win in Saturday’s penultimate stage up to Tourmalet in the Pyrenees, she still had enough energy left to finish 10 seconds behind Reusser in the time trial held in the southwestern city of Pau.

Team SD Worx completed a stage treble with Lotte Kopecky of Belgium finishing in third place. Kopecky was 38 seconds behind Reusser, who covered the 22.6 kilometers (14 miles) in 29 minutes, 15 seconds.

Kopecky’s performance also moved her up two spots to second place overall in the general classification, a total of 3 minutes, 3 seconds behind Vollering, with Kasia Niewiadoma of Poland dropping to third overall.

Niewiadoma was also 3:03 behind Vollering but Kopecky edged her out in the standings because of time splits recorded in the time trial, organizers said.

The 40-year-old Dutchwoman Annemiek van Vleuten, last year’s Tour winner , was fourth this year, finishing 3:59 behind Vollering.

Niewiadoma won the best climber’s polka-dot jersey while Kopecky collected the green jersey for best sprinter.

Demi Vollering in the yellow jersey at the Tour de France Femmes 2023

In the end, the final stage of the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift was a formality. 

Demi Vollering (SD Worx), the standout winner of Saturday’s seventh stage , went from champion-elect to champion in Pau, placing second in the closing individual time trial, and sealing her yellow jersey by three minutes and three seconds.

Her face at the start of the day painted a picture of confidence. As she warmed up on her turbo trainer, yellow skinsuit hanging around her waist, she breathed calmly, focused and relaxed.

"I felt a bit too relaxed when I woke up," she told the press, including Cycling Weekly, in Pau. "[It was] almost already in the pocket, but of course I needed to still ride the time trial." 

As the race leader, the Dutchwoman was the last rider to tackle the 22.6km course, an out-and-back loop from the city's Place de Verdun. She began the day with an almost two-minute lead, but refused to treat it as a procession. 

"I told myself I had a goal to also do a good time trial here," she said, and under overcast skies, she ended up exceeding her expectations. 

Just 10 seconds separated Vollering's time in Pau from that of the stage winner, her team-mate and European champion Marlen Reusser, who stopped the clock at 29-15, averaging 46.359km/h.

"I still can't believe it," Vollering said of her overall victory. "I think, in the coming days, I need to have some relaxation with my family, and some calmness also to realise what I've done.

"It's amazing what we did this week. We had a lot of ups, of course there were also some crazy downs , but mostly ups. I think we really showed how strong our team is and also how motivated we are to take the best out of the day and to really fight for stage wins. We really make each other stronger."

Of the eight stages on offer at this year's race, SD Worx won four, stamping their imprint as the WorldTour's presiding squad. 

The stage result on the final day told a story of SD Worx dominance, too. Behind Reusser and Vollering came Lotte Kopecky, 38 seconds down in third place. The Belgian champion's performance meant she jumped from fourth to second in the overall standings, overtaking third by a fraction of a second. 

Being on the podium, Kopecky explained, was a feat she had never imagined. 

"I surprised myself quite a lot," the green jersey winner said with a smile. "Especially yesterday [finishing sixth on the Tourmalet] actually, being one of the better sprinters, and also one of the better climbers, and also a good time trialist. 

"Before this Tour, I was not really aiming for GC, I was not thinking about this." 

Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon-Sram), the winner of the polka dot jersey, rounded out the podium, while last year's champion, Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar), finished fourth, 3-59 down on Vollering. The 40-year-old came 14th in the time trial, 1-41 off Reusser's pace. 

"Too bad about the last two days. I underperformed," Van Vleuten told the press. "I don't know what's going on, but I certainly wasn't okay the last two days."

Demi vollering wins tour de france femmes.

  • OlympicTalk ,
  • OlympicTalk

Demi Vollering won the Tour de France Femmes, one year after taking second to countrywoman Annemiek van Vleuten in the first edition of the cycling stage race.

Vollering, 26, prevailed by 3 minutes, 3 seconds over Lotte Kopecky of Belgium after eight stages, which culminated with a 14-mile time trial Sunday in Pau. Katarzyna Niewiadoma took third in the same total time as Kopecky.

Van Vleuten, 40, was fourth in her final Tour before retiring and, it appears, ceding the Dutch mantle to Vollering.

Kopecky led the Tour after each of the first six stages before Vollering seized control on the lone mountain stage on Saturday, a summit finish at the Col du Tourmalet.

In addition to last year’s runner-up, Vollering was also second at May’s Vuelta a Espana and third at the 2021 Giro d’Italia.

Her biggest wins before this were in one-day races including Liège–Bastogne–Liège, the Amstel Gold Race and La Flèche Wallonne.

Dutch cyclist Demi Vollering wins first Women's Tour de France title

Dutch rider Demi Vollering won the Women's Tour de France on Sunday after Marlen Reusser claimed the final stage time trial in Pau.

Issued on: 30/07/2023 - 18:25 Modified: 30/07/2023 - 18:27

SD Worx team leader Vollering, 26, finished the eight-stage race ahead of Belgian teammate Lotte Kopecky and Poland 's Katarzyna Niewiadoma of the Canyon-SRAM team.

It was the 15th victory this year for world number one Vollering who dominated the spring classics, with a hat-trick in the Ardennes  – Fleche Wallonne, Liege and Amstel  – that only compatriot Anna van der Breggen had achieved before her. 

Defending champion Annemiek van Vleuten, 40, who will retire at the end of the season, finished off the podium in fourth.

In the streets of Pau, watched by French prime minister Elisabeth Borne, on roads that had dried after heavy morning showers, Reusser set the fastest time of 29min 15secs over the 22km course at the bottom of the Pyrenean foothills.

The Swiss achieved her seventh success of the season after the Ghent-Wevelgem, the Tour of Switzerland and the Tour of the Basque Country. 

Vollering took second place in this final time trial which changed the order of the podium established on Saturday at the top of the Col du Tourmalet. 

Kopecky, who had worn the leader's yellow jersey for six days from the first stage, moved from fourth to second overall at the expense of Van Vleuten, who finished 12th in Pau.

Niewiadoma matched her 2022 performance and also won the mountain classification.

Demi Vollering wins women's Tour de France as teammate takes final stage

  • ESPN News Services

Demi Vollering won the women's Tour de France for the first time Sunday while her teammate Marlen Reusser of Switzerland clinched the final-stage time trial.

Although the 26-year-old Vollering was already in a strong position after a dominant win in Saturday's penultimate stage up to Tourmalet in the Pyrenees, she still had enough energy left to finish 10 seconds behind Reusser in the time trial held in the southwestern city of Pau.

The overall victory completed a challenging Tour for the Dutch rider. In Stage 5, Vollering received a 20-second penalty for riding in the slipstream of her SD Worx team director Danny Stam's car, with Stam later being banned for "dangerous" overtaking and making "inappropriate comments."

Despite the setback, Vollering entered the finale with a sizeable 1-minute, 50-second advantage.

"I think I still, again, cannot believe it," said Vollering, who has endured several narrow misses in recent years, twice finishing runner-up in La Vuelta Femenina and third in the 2021 Giro Donne. "Of course, I worked hard, but it's just not only working hard, it's believing in it. You have a dream and you work really hard for it, but also you need to keep yourself a bit calm and find a good balance in your life."

Team SD Worx completed a stage treble with Lotte Kopecky of Belgium finishing in third place. Kopecky was 38 seconds behind Reusser, who covered the 14 miles in 29:15.

Kopecky's performance moved her up two spots to second place overall in the general classification, 3:03 behind Vollering, with Kasia Niewiadoma of Poland dropping to third overall.

Niewiadoma was also 3:03 behind Vollering, but Kopecky edged her out in the standings because of time splits recorded in the time trial, organizers said.

Annemiek van Vleuten, last year's Tour winner, was fourth this year, finishing 3:59 behind Vollering.

Niewiadoma won the best climber's polka-dot jersey while Kopecky collected the green jersey for best sprinter.

The Associated Press and Reuters contributed to this report.

On the podium:

Tour de France Femmes 2023 podium. Left to right: Kopecky (second), Vollering (first) and Niewiadoma (third).

One last message before we say goodbye to the Tour de France Femmes: Alan has emailed in to say that now the Tour has concluded, he is off for a bike ride. Seems like a good idea. I hope you have better weather than I do here in rainy London (I’m currently sat sheltering inside Herne Hill Velodrome with a bunch of racers).

Alan writes: “I usually ride before catching your live commentary. Sundays are a bit slower, but gotta ride now! Thanks for the great coverage. Good result, although I was hoping Niewiadoma would pull off a faster time, cool though!”

Vollering speaks … “I still cant believe it,” she says. “ Of course I worked hard, but it’s not just working hard… it’s believing in it. It’s so much together, and in the end you have a dream. You work really hard for it but you need to keep yourself a bit calm and find a good balance in your life also. You have to find a relaxed way to do it. This year I feel really comfortable and good in what I’m doing.”

Van Vleuten has spoken also … asked how she feels after today’s time trial, she answers with one word: “disappointment”. She goes on to explain that she already thought she wouldn’t do well in today’s stage as she didn’t feel great last night, but she had hoped for better anyway. “I was not good the last two days,” she says.

Top five on the General Classification after stage eight

1. Demi Vollering (SD Worx) 25hr 17min 35sec 2. Lotte Kopecky (SD Worx) +3min 03sec 3. Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon//Sram) +3min 03sec 4. Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar) +3min 59sec 5. Juliette Labous (DSM-Firmenich) +4min 48sec

Smiles all round for Kopecky, Vollering and Niewiadoma.

Demi Vollering wins the Tour de France Femmes 2023

Vollering secured her win yesterday really, but this is the official confirmation that she’s held on to the maillot jaune and is crowned Tour de France Femmes 2023 winner. Kopecky has overhauled both Niewiadoma and van Vleuten to finish second. Niewiadoma finishes in third. Unbelievably, she has the same time gap as Kopecky at 3min 03sec, but loses out on tenths or hundredths of seconds on the time trial. Van Vleuten has dropped off the podium and finishes her final Tour in fourth place.

Demi Vollering is the winner of the 2023 Tour de France Femmes!

Marlen Reusser wins stage seven

None of the big names that followed could beat the European time trial champion. She’s taken the win on stage seven by setting a time of 29min 15sec over the 22.6km time trial course.

Marlen Reusser wins the stage!

Van Vleuten has finished 12th . She grimaces, gets out of the saddle for one more push but it’s not enough. She’s crossed the line 1min 14sec behind Reusser’s time.

Kopecky is second fastest so far … She’s just crossed the line 37sec behind Reusser. That was a great effort. Think she’ll be pleased with that and it should give her a spot on the podium.

Labous crosses in fourth place … She’s 1min 17sec behind Reusser and looks to climb the final GC rankings. Kopecky has passed Moolman Passio, while van Vleuten is looking sure to slip off the podium.

🔥P4 on the line for @JulietteLabous ! There's a 5th place in GC on the cards here ! 🔥4ème place pour @JulietteLabous ! Il y a une 5ème place au classement général à la clé ! #TDFF2023 #WatchTheFemmes @Gozwift pic.twitter.com/5yModeyHyf — Le Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift (@LeTourFemmes) July 30, 2023

Vollering is putting in a stellar effort … She passes through the intermediate time check down by 12sec, putting her into second place for the moment.

Niewiadoma is flying … she might well hold on to second place on the podium. After yesterday’s valiant effort, it would seem cruel for her to slip off at this stage.

Not looking so good for van Vleuten: She’s 1min 01sec behind Reusser’s time.

Looking good for Kopecky: She is third fastest at the intermediate time check. Kopecky is 30sec behind Reusser.

Riejanne Markus: The Jumbo-Visma rider has slotted into third place with a time of 30min 05sec. She’s 50sec behind Reusser.

Reusser is the one to beat ... Will anyone go faster than the European time trial champ?

🇪🇺Marlen Reusser had ambitions to win, she certainly did everything in her power to claim a second #TDFF stage win! 🇪🇺Marlen Reusser pour ambition de gagner, elle a fait le maximum pour remporter une deuxième victoire d'étape au #TDFF . #TDFF2023 #WatchTheFemmes @Gozwift pic.twitter.com/8wRN6cvNG2 — Le Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift (@LeTourFemmes) July 30, 2023

Van Vleuten: With 16km left of her time trial, van Vleuten is 16sec behind Reusser according to the live timings.

Demi Vollering: The yellow jersey, or should I say yellow skinsuit wearer, is off. Kasia Niewiadoma started 2min earlier and van Vleuten set of at 3.57pm.

Demi Vollering sets off on her sprint.

Kasia Niewiadoma: Clad in a polka-dot skinsuit and red aero helmet, the Canyon-SRAM rider has ridden down the ramp and begun her bid to hang on to a podium place.

Lotte Kopecky: The Belgian rider, who was seen earlier warming up on a green road bike, has just swatted a bee off her helmet and is on her way …

“Yesterday’s race up the Tourmalet was iconic,” writes Toby. He’s emailed in to share his Tour highlight. “The fog, the altitude, the end of the Annemiek van Vleuten era,” he writes. “I was so happy to see Kasia Niewiadoma, one of my favourite riders across both pelotons, attack and be able to hold it to the end, finishing second.” He’s also shared this set of images by photographer Justin Britton. “The first one, particularly, encapsulates so much about the theatre of bike racing,” writes Toby.

MADNESS @demivollering pic.twitter.com/xehTyNpGbE — Justin Britton (@Justin_Britton) July 29, 2023

We’re coming up to the business end now … there are only six riders left to start and they include Juliette Labous, Moolman Pasio, Kopecky, van Vleuten, Niewiadoma and Vollering.

Liane Lippert: Stage two winner, Lippert has just descended the ramp and is out on the road. Cordon-Ragot clocked a time of 30min 48sec and can be seen pouring water over her head as she sits on the floor. Unfortunately for Cordon-Ragot, her aero helmet doesn’t have any vents.

Reusser pushes Brown out of the lead: We just had a new leader, but it wasn’t for long. Reusser has trumped Brown by 40sec and finishes her ITT in 29min 15sec. I wonder how much time she lost due to the motorbike and team car debacle earlier …

Marlen Reusser of SD Worx during the Tour de France Femmes stage eight individual time trial.

Brown has gone into the lead: We have a new leader. Brown has beaten her teammate Guazzini to first place. She was 40sec faster, with a time of 29min 55sec.

Marlen Reusser: As the SD Worx rider was catching another rider on the course, she was slowed down by a motorbike and a team car in her way in to a corner. That’s not great.

Grace Brown: The Aussie is flying and 29sec faster than Cordon-Ragot at the intermediate time check.

Yara Kastelijn has been awarded the super combativity award

Stage four winner, Kastelijn, has won the super combativity award for this year’s Tour de France Femmes . In case you need a reminder: Kastelijn won the longest stage of this year’s Tour, from Cahors to Rodez, after spending just under 160 kilometres on the front of the race, much of it in a 14-rider move that went clear on the day’s first climb, the Col de Crayssac. Here’s Jeremy Whittle’s report on that dramatic day …

Lizzie Holden and Lucinda Brand: The British national time trial champion has finished in sixth place, while Brand has jumped into second place and is 9sec behind the leader.

Lizzie Holden finishes in sixth place.

A fan of the time trial: Andrew from Cambridge has emailed in to share his appreciation of today’s stage. “I think it’s a neat touch to end the tour with a time trial, it gives every contender a chance in the telly limelight on the day everyone will be watching,” he writes. He adds: “And a chance for many to be in the lead for a couple of minutes, which I imagine is good for the individuals, the teams and the tour itself. Something for a near-future men’s TdF to consider?” Well, Andrew, happily for you, next year’s Tour de France will end in an individual time trial from Monaco to Nice.

Audrey Cordon Ragot and Grace Brown: The multiple French time trial champion is off, closely followed by Australian national TT champ, Grace Brown. The latter also won a silver medal in last year’s world champs in this discipline.

Henderson is second in the standings: A really strong ride for Henderson but she couldn’t quite manage to beat Guazzini’s time. She’s finished just over 15secs slower, with a time of 30min 51sec, but that does mean she is in second place overall

Anna Henderson finishes the tour strongly.

Anna Henderson: The Jumbo-Visma rider has set a new best time at the intermediate time check of 13min 37sec. That’s 3sec faster than Guazzini. Will she be in the hot seat next?

🇫🇷 #TDFF2023 Provisional fastest time for Anna at the first intermediate point! 👊 — Team Jumbo-Visma Women (@JumboVismaWomen) July 30, 2023

Arianna Fidanza: The Ceratizit-WNT has just been shown on the coverage with a bloodied knee and looking a bit worse for wear after having crashed. She’s standing up and being checked over.

Mischa Bredewold: The SD Worx rider is out on the road. Her helmet is giving me Star Wars vibes.

Emma Norsgaard: Stage six winner, Norsgaard is the Danish national TT champion. She’s just set off for her go on this 22.6km route. Will she bump Guazzini out of the hot seat? She’s currently sat there smiling and checking her phone.

An email: “I’m looking forward to today’s time trial,” writes Peter. “But I think I have to agree with Demi Vollering from her interview yesterday. This race has been so good. It deserves a glass of champagne and a bike ride into Paris.”

Vittoria Guazzini: As mentioned earlier, the FDJ-Suez rider is the U23 time trial world champion. She’s set a time of 30min 36sec at a speed of 44.3km/h.

The bump in the road: Today’s 22.6km time trial features a climb at roughly halfway. The Côte de Bosdarros is 1.38km and has an average gradient of 6.7%. While some of the riders won’t welcome the bump in the road, it’s likely to suit Kopecky.

Coming roughly halfway through today's route, the 1.38km Côte de Bosdarros averages 6.7%. @ashleighcycling is the current holder of the @Strava QOM but after 7 hard days of racing, can anyone better her time? 👑⏱️ #TDFF2023 #TDFFdata pic.twitter.com/cAW6fiUNUJ — letourdata (@letourdata) July 30, 2023

Josie Talbot: The Cofidis rider set off second, after van ‘t Geloof, but is the first to finish the ITT. She has set a time of 31min 42sec.

As always, please send in your thoughts , predictions and questions via email or Twitter. I would love the company …

The live TV coverage began at 2pm and there’s a lot of shots of riders warming up, walking around in aero helmets and prediction chat from the commentators. I’m yet to see it cut to the actual live footage, but when it does these updates will hopefully become more frequent.

Mavi Garcia: The Liv Racing Teqfind rider will not start today’s stage due to illness. The Spanish rider is 15th in the overall rankings.

There is one time check , located at 10.6km to go. Also, in case you’re interested, there are 10 national individual time trial champions taking part in today’s stage. Antri Christoforou (Team Human Powered Health), a national ITT champion for Cyprus, has already set off, as has U23 world champion Vittoria Guazzini (FDJ-Suez). The next ITT champ to go down the ramp will be Emma Norsgaard at 2.29pm. The other national ITT champions to look out for are Elizabeth Holden (2.39pm), Georgia Williams (2.41pm), Christine Majerus (3.42pm), Agnieszka Skalniak-Sojka (3.47pm), Grace Brown (4.08pm), Cédrine Kerbaol (France, 4.37pm), Riejanne Markus (4.39pm) and Lotte Kopecky (4.55pm). European ITT champion Marlen Reusser is up at 3.12pm.

Yesterday’s stage took the riders up the iconic Col du Tourmalet, which is sure to affect their legs for today’s ITT.

Stage eight is go!

Two riders have begun their bid at the individual time trial. Marjolein van ‘t Geloof (Human Powered Health), as the lanterne rouge , set of first at 1.38pm. Josie Talbot (Cofidis) goes second.

There are 123 riders left in this year’s Tour but the main focus of today’s time trial will be on just a handful that could upset the podium standings. After Demi Vollering’s victory on the Col du Tourmalet yesterday pushed her into the GC lead, it’s difficult to see anyone challenging her for the yellow jersey. She has a 1min 50 sec lead over second placed Kasia Niewiadoma. So, the real battle will be for the final two podium spots: the gap that separates Niewiadoma in second and Ashleigh Moolman Passio in fifth is just 49 sec.

Will Annemiek van Vleuten dig deep for a stage win given her TT chops? Or, will Lotte Kopecky claim a second podium spot for SD Worx? They do have form on the one-two victories after all.

Who’s wearing what jersey?

Yellow: Demi Vollering (SD Worx) 24hr 48min 10sec

Green: Lotte Kopecky (SD Worx) 228pts

Polka-dot: Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon-SRAM) 27pts

White: Cédrine Kerbaol (Ceratizit–WNT Pro Cycling) 24hr 58min 16sec

Lotte Kopecky will finally get to wear the green jersey on today’s stage.

Tour de France Femmes: Demi Vollering climbs to stage win and yellow jersey

Stage seven report: Demi Vollering took a spectacular and career-defining win at the summit of the Col du Tourmalet in the Pyrenees, to take over the lead in the Tour de France Femmes , with only Sunday’s 22km time trial remaining.

The SD Worx rider emphatically shattered the stalemate with her Dutch compatriot, Annemiek van Vleuten, attacking with a little over 5km of the stage remaining. At the finish line, Vollering had pulled out more than two and a half minutes on Van Vleuten. Jeremy Whittle reports from Tourmalet Bagnères-de-Bigorre …

Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift race director, Marion Rousse on stage eight: “Between Pau and Gan, this stage will initially follow the route of the final part of the 2019 Tour de France time trial, but running in the opposite direction. After topping the climb (1.8km at 5.5%), the winding course will demand multiple accelerations. The slightly uphill approach to the finish will offer a magnificent panorama, and perhaps some final suspense before the presentation of the Yellow Jersey.”

The first rider will roll down the ramp for today’s individual time trial at 1.38pm (BST).

⏱️ The only Time Trial on the #TDFF2023 sees the riders start and finish in Pau for a 22 km course. Enough to change the GC? ⏱️ Le seul contre-la-montre du #TDFF2023 démarre et finit à Pau pour une boucle de 22 km.

Demi Vollering Inks Major Deal with Nike

The Tour de France Femmes winner becomes Nike’s newest sponsored athlete.

a man sitting on a couch

Via her Instagram account , Vollering announced that she signed the personal sponsorship deal with the megabrand this past Sunday. The photo showed the 27-year-old Dutch superstar presumably signing her contract with a caption that read:

“I am proud and grateful to have signed a partnership with Nike. With Nike’s support, I will pursue the dreams and goals I have set for the coming years. Furthermore, I am aware of my role within women’s cycling and women’s sports in general, and the opportunities it presents. Together with Nike, I can achieve common goals and effectively spread my message. We want to inspire many people to start moving, and together, we will make dreams come true.”

The details of the deal remain scarce, but Nike’s sponsorship of Vollering speaks volumes about the leaps and bounds women’s cycling has made over the last few seasons. And, after winning last year’s Tour de France Femmes and rumors about where she’ll land next season when her SD Worx-Protime contract runs out, Vollering is arguably the hottest property in women’s cycling.

From a wider perspective, Vollering’s deal with one of the biggest brands on the planet feels like yet another piece falling into place for women in sports. Just a few weeks ago, the brand signed young basketball superstar Caitlin Clark to a $28 million deal that includes a signature shoe. Women’s soccer around the world is booming. And interest in women’s cycling is at an all-time high .

On their surface, these connections might feel tenuous at best, but when approached from the perspective of marketing angles, they make a lot more sense. After all, young women around the world are seeing the results of years of efforts to build and grow women’s sports, whether it is cycling, basketball, or soccer. With Clark’s runaway success in America, the coming summer Olympics, and the booming popularity of women’s cycling, it feels like we’re standing at a watershed moment in women’s sports.

Nike had a major foray into cycling during the Lance Armstrong era. However, that relationship ended abruptly when the American’s doping tactics were revealed. Since then, Nike has mostly stayed out of the sport at large, though they do currently sponsor a few cyclists across a variety of disciplines. The most notable is Mark Cavendish , who wears Nike-branded cycling shoes.

Cav’s shoes are wholly custom and manufactured by a third party, however, as Nike’s only consumer cycling offerings currently are for indoor riding.

As Vollering’s SD Worx team is sponsored by Specialized, she’ll need to be granted special permission to wear Nikes in the peloton. The same will apply next year, with whichever team she ends up riding for.

Euro 2024: et si les Bleus jouaient pendant les législatives...

demi tour de france

Les diffuseurs des Bleus en France seront leurs premiers supporteurs en phases de poules. Par chauvinisme mais aussi, depuis dimanche, pour une histoire de programmation TV . L’équipe de France de football pourrait en effet disputer un éventuel huitième de finale de l’Euro 2024 le 30 juin, soit le même jour que le premier tour des élections législatives anticipées, convoquées dimanche par Emmanuel Macron, président de la République, après la sévère défaite de son parti aux élections européennes.

Le 30 juin à 21h sur TF1 en pleine soirée électorale?

Cela pourrait se produire si les Bleus terminaient parmi les quatre meilleurs troisièmes de la phase de poule. Ils pourraient affronter le premier groupe C (Slovénie, Danemark, Serbie, Angleterre) à 18h, le dimanche 30 juin, selon les équipes figurant parmi les meilleures troisièmes (tous les cas de figures sont expliqués ici dans le règlement de la compétition). La rencontre serait alors diffusée sur M6, co-diffuseur des matchs de l’équipe de France pendant la compétition. Un éventuel match des Bleus pourrait concurrencer une potentielle soirée législative, notamment en cas de prolongation qui débuterait sur les coups de 20h.

Cela serait encore plus problématique dans l’autre cas de figure où les Français, toujours s'ils terminaient dans les meilleurs troisièmes, pourraient jouer le dimanche à 21h, contre le premier du premier groupe B (Espagne, Croatie, Italie, Albanie). La rencontre serait alors diffusée sur TF1… en pleine soirée électorale. Dimanche, la chaîne privée a décidé de différer la diffusion du match de préparation contre le Canada après l’annonce par Emmanuel Macron de la dissolution de l’Assemblée nationale.

Le coup d’envoi de la rencontre avait initialement été décalé à 21h15 en raison de la tenue des élections européennes. La prise de parole du chef de l’Etat a chamboulé le programme de la première chaîne qui a pris la décision de retransmettre le match avec plus de dix minutes de retard. "On ne va pas s'emmerder avec un match amical alors qu'il y a dissolution", a réagi un membre de la chaîne cité par Le Parisien. "L'actualité prime toujours. Et l'actualité principale, c'est évidemment la dissolution. Donc c'est normal d'informer les téléspectateurs. L'erreur aurait été de ne pas le faire", a précisé un cadre de la chaîne. Le groupe a trois semaines pour préparer ce cas de figure avec un enjeu sportif plus important que celui de dimanche.

  • France-Canada: "Ça va très bien", Mbappé se montre rassurant après son entrée en jeu
  • Spoil, "Bordeaux en L1"… les réseaux sociaux s'enflamment durant la diffusion de France-Canada en différé

Le problème sera réglé si les Bleus terminent premiers (8e le 2 juillet), deuxièmes (8e le 1er juillet) où sont éliminés. Il ne se posera pas lors du deuxième tour le 7 juillet, jour sans match à l’Euro entre les quarts et les demi-finales.

'Perfect' - Primoz Roglic celebrates 'beautiful' title win at Criterium du Dauphine ahead of Tour de France

Eurosport

Published 09/06/2024 at 14:32 GMT

Primoz Roglic (Bora-Hansgrohe) began the final stage of the 2024 Criterium du Dauphine over a minute ahead of his closest rival, Matteo Jorgenson (Visma-Lease a bike) on Sunday. However he saw his lead chipped away as Jorgenson was part of a trio to attack with five kilometers remaining of the stage and the race. He was able to hold onto an eight-second gap in his favour.

Roland-Garros 2024 : Zverev se qualifie pour les demies face à De Minaur... Revivez la journée de mercredi

demi tour de france

Ce qu'il faut savoir

On connait désormais les quatre joueurs qui s'affronteront dans le carré final . Après les qualifications de Jannik Sinner et Carlos Alcaraz , c'est Alexander Zverev qui s'est imposé face à Alex De Minaur en trois sets. Chez les femmes, Mirra Andreeva et Jasmine Paolini ont créé l'exploit pour leur premier quart de finale en Grand Chelem et se retrouveront en demi-finales dès jeudi . 

Zverev encore en demi-finales 

Abandon de Novak Djokovic oblige , il n'y avait qu'un seul quart de finale masculin programmé mercredi. Alexander Zverev, n°4 mondial, tombeur d'Holger Rune en cinq sets et plus de quatre heures de match en huitièmes , a ajouté un nom à son tableau de chasse de la quinzaine parisienne : Alex De Minaur. L'Australien, venu à bout de Daniil Medvedev en huitièmes, jouait son premier quart de finale à Roland-Garros. Il a été balayé par un Zverev, pourtant brouillon, en trois sets (6-4, 7-6 [7-5], 6-4) et 2h59 de jeu.

Rybakina et Sabalenka au tapis

La probabilité de retrouver les quatre premières joueuses mondiales en demi-finale dans le tableau féminin était forte après les qualifications d'Iga Swiatek et Coco Gauff la veille, mais Jasmine Paolini et Mirra Andreeva en ont décidé autrement. Les deux joueuses ont tour à tour créé l'exploit contre Elena Rybakina (n°4) et Aryna Sabalenka (n°2) pour s'offrir leur ticket dans le dernier carré. Elles s'affronteront jeudi pour tenter de décrocher leur première finale en Majeur.
